Q3 Earnings Warnings Second-Worst Since 2001

And here comes the QE3 with their warnings, as our economy is in total collapse. This time it is companies issuing their own warnings… And the Fed keeps printing away…

US companies are warning about Q3 earnings at the second highest level since 2001, with estimates well below what they were just three short months ago. Of course, the US equity markets don’t care – having rallied aggressively in the face of this collapse; lubricated by multiple-expanding QE and rev. repo.

As Reuters reports, companies issuing negative outlooks outnumber positive ones by 5.2-to-1, the most negative since the 6.3-to-1 ratio in the second quarter, when however the “second half recovery” (which has been once again indefinitely delayed, perhaps to the third half?) was said would take place momentarily and lead to another mythical rebound. Industrials, Materials, and Tech top the list for negative pre-announcements.
