2 Topic of the Week: EARNINGS INSIGHT July 1, 2016 Smaller Than Average Cuts to EPS Estimates for S&P 500 Companies during Q2 Over the course of the second quarter, analysts lowered earnings estimates for companies in the S&P 500 for the quarter. The Q2 bottom-up EPS estimate (which is an aggregation of the EPS estimates for all the companies in the index) dropped by 2.6% (to $28.65 from $29.43) during this period. How significant is a 2.6% decline in the bottom-up EPS estimate during a quarter? How does this decrease compare to recent quarters? During the past year (4 quarters), the average decline in the bottom-up EPS estimate during a quarter has been 4.7%. During the past five years (20 quarters), the average decline in the bottom-up EPS estimate during a quarter has been 4.4%. During the past ten years, (40 quarters), the average decline in the bottom-up EPS estimate during a quarter has been 5.5%. Thus, the decline in the bottom-up EPS estimate recorded during the first quarter was smaller than the 1-year, 5-year, and 10-year averages. This was the smallest drop in the bottom-up EPS estimate for quarter since Q (-2.2%). As the bottom-up EPS estimate declined during the quarter, the value of the S&P 500 increased during this same time frame. From March 31 through June 30, the value of the index increased by 1.9% (to from ). This marked the 15th time in the past 20 quarters in which the bottom-up EPS estimate decreased during the quarter while the value of the index increased during the quarter.

3 Q Earnings Season: By the Numbers Overview In terms of estimate revisions for companies in the S&P 500, analysts have made smaller cuts than average to earnings estimates for Q On a per-share basis, estimated earnings for the second quarter have fallen by 2.6%. This percentage decline is smaller than the trailing 5-year average (-4.4%) and trailing 10-year average (-5.5%) for a quarter. In addition, a slightly smaller percentage of S&P 500 companies have lowered the bar for earnings for Q relative to recent averages. Of the 113 companies that have issued EPS guidance for the first quarter, 81 have issued negative EPS guidance and 32 have issued positive EPS guidance. The percentage of companies issuing negative EPS guidance is 72% (81 out of 113), which is slightly below the 5-year average of 74%. As a result of the downward revisions to earnings estimates, the estimated year-over-year earnings decline for Q is -5.3% today, which is larger than the expected earnings decline of -2.8% at the start of the quarter (March 31). Four sectors are predicted to report year-over-year earnings growth, led by the Telecom Services and Consumer Discretionary sectors. Six sectors are projected to report a year-over-year decline in earnings, led by the Energy, Materials, and Information Technology sectors. As a result of downward revisions to sales estimates, the estimated sales decline for Q is -0.8%, which is larger than the estimated sales decline of -0.5% at the start of the quarter. Six sectors are projected to report yearover-year growth in revenues, led by the Telecom Services and Health Care sectors. Four sectors are predicted to report a year-over-year decline in revenues, led by the Energy and Materials sectors. Looking at future quarters, analysts currently project earnings and revenue growth to return in Q The forward 12-month P/E ratio is now 16.4, which is above the 5-year and 10-year averages. During the upcoming week, 2 S&P 500 companies are scheduled to report results for the second quarter. Earnings Revisions: Tech Sector Has Recorded Largest Drop in Expected Earnings for Q2 Small Change in Estimated Earnings Decline for Q2 This Week The estimated earnings decline for the second quarter is -5.3% this week, which is slightly larger than the estimated earnings decline of -5.2% last week. Overall, the estimated earnings decline for Q of -5.3% today is larger than the estimated earnings decline of -2.8% at the start of the quarter (March 31). Nine of the ten sectors have recorded a decline in expected earnings growth since the beginning of the quarter due to downward revisions to earnings estimates, led by the Information Technology sector. The only sector that has recorded an increase in expected earnings growth since the start of the quarter due to upward revisions to earnings estimates is the Industrials sector. Information Technology: Largest Increase in Expected Earnings Decline, Led by Apple The Information Technology sector has recorded the largest decrease in expectations for year-over-year earnings since the start of the quarter (to -7.2% from -0.2%).

However, the downward revisions to EPS estimates for Apple (to $1.40 from $1.78), Microsoft (to $0.58 from $0.67), and IBM (to $2.88 from $3.44) have been the largest contributors to the increase in the projected earnings decline for this sector. The Information Technology sector has also witnessed the largest decrease in price (-3.3%) of all ten sectors since the start of the quarter. Industrials: Largest Decrease in Expected Earnings Decline, Led by GE On the other hand, the Industrials sector has recorded the largest increase in expectations for year-over-year earnings since the start of the quarter (to -1.4% from -4.1%). However, only 23 of the 68 companies in this sector have seen upward revisions to EPS estimates to date, led by General Electric (to $0.46 from $0.29). Despite the increase in estimated earnings, General Electric has recorded a decrease in price of 0.9% since March 31.

This decline in the EPS estimate for Q was below the trailing 1-year average decline (-4.8%), the trailing 5-year average decline (-4.4%), and the trailing 10- year average decline (-5.5%) in the bottom-up EPS estimate for a quarter.
