Controversies defeated bulletproof statistics

The Dow Jones Industrial Average Tuesday marked decline, due mainly to the results of leading U.S. companies, the worst loss since the end of June this year.

Earnings season is still very disappointing. Consensus statements were a slightly worse compared to the previous quarter, but the current trend is clearly alarming for most businesses. Quantitatively expressed: about a third of companies, boasting a "membership club" S & P 500, reported revenues worse than generally expected to roughly 63% of them. For comparison, the twenty-year average of this indicator sounds almost exactly the opposite:   62% of companies reported earnings above the consensus value.

According to many economists, the attention of global investors are now much more focused on the actual earnings season, than on the main themes last week, which was the situation in southern Europe and increasing concerns over the economic condition of China. Sales considerable number of companies lagged behind the requirements analysts, which has reinforced concerns about the performance of the world economy, mainly because of the global importance of these corporations. Today's loss of equity indices, however, confirmed by another fact: in economics more than anywhere else, the numbers are more than controversy. Basically, kurzotvornější information clearly become the published financial statements, than the endless debate over the term and the amount of Spanish application for financial assistance.
