As I have previously commented upon, one of the challenging (and problematic) aspects of today’s business environment is the continuing “lagging” (and low) corporate revenue growth.
The Thomson Reuters “This Week In Earnings” (pdf) report of August 2, 2013 lists the estimated 2nd quarter revenue growth for both the S&P500 as well as various sectors.
The estimated revenue growth rate for the S&P 500 for Q2 2013 is 2.1%. The S&P 500 is expected to earn revenues of $2,557.4B in Q2 2013 compared to $2,504.6B in Q2 2012.
Also, a table shows the estimated revenue growth for the various sectors. As one can see, while all the sectors are projected to have revenue growth, various sectors have low revenue growth. Among those with the lowest growth include the Consumer Staples with a projected revenue growth of 2.0%; the Technology sector with a projected revenue growth of 1.7%; the Industrials with a projected revenue growth of 1.4%; and the Materials with a projected revenue growth of .1%.
