Your Editor On Switzer: Reporting Season In August

FNArena Talks | Jul 31 2014

FNArena Editor Rudi Filapek-Vandyck explained to Peter Switzer he's expecting a "schizophrenic" reporting season in August, in which companies might have to really, really disappoint for share prices to sustainably head south. Earnings estimates are falling leading into the reporting season, he says, but investors are keen to allocate more funds into the share market and therefore more willing to look beyond short term disappointment, as long as the outlook remains promising.

On top of this, other factors that can positively overshadow profit results are acquisitions, share buy-backs, extra dividends and further promises of restructuring and increased efficiencies, as well as ongoing progress in large LNG projects.
