Bonanza profits may not be enough

Apr 16, 2018 (The Australian Financial Review - ABIX via COMTEX) --

Morgan Stanley expects earnings per share growth for the S&P 500 companies to be 17 per cent year-on-year in the March 2018 quarter. This will rise to around 20 per cent in the September quarter, according to the investment bank. In contrast, Australian-listed companies are forecast to achieve profit growth of 7-8 per cent. The strong earnings outlook for the current US reporting season has been attributed to factors such as the Trump administration's corporate tax cuts, the lower US dollar and a sustained period of synchronised global economic growth..
