Factset: Lowest count of U.S. companies issuing positive guidance since 2006

The financial data firm Factset reported today in an email to clients that positive guidance is at the lowest level since 2006: “For Q1 2015, 85 companies in the S&P 500 have issued negative EPS guidance and 16 companies have issued positive EPS guidance. If 16 is the final number of companies issuing positive EPS guidance for the quarter, it will mark the lowest number since Q1 2006. The number of companies issuing negative EPS guidance for Q1 2015 is above the trailing five-year average (76), but slightly below the trailing one-year average (87) for a quarter.”
