Companies’ confidence index peaks behind us – growth outlook still good

9 April 2018

The current global economic growth situation anticipates +3.7% GDP growth for this year, but it seems that companies’ best confidence index levels lie behind us. Obviously, the results of surveys cannot improve forever. The improvement in credit risk premiums correlates strongly with the actual return and activity, which is why they need monitoring. Companies’ earnings growth outlook is still excellent: the US anticipates earnings growth of as high as 19.5% for this year.
