THE DIGITAL STRENGTH INDEX
Q1 2018 QUARTERLY GROWTH REPORT
For our third Quarterly Report, Isobar and alpha-DNA take a look back at Q1 2018 and analyze the past quarter’s growth and the future quarter’s projected growth through a lens of Digital Strength to identify those companies and industries on the right track or at risk.
In the decade after the 2008 financial crash, Q1 2018 will mark the highest revenue growth reported by the S&P Index since Q3 2011
Year-to-date 2018 growth oriented companies continue to be rewarded far better than the rest of the market in terms of their overall stock price performance.
The proportion of companies reporting a positive revenue surprise still remains high at 74%, where on average we would expect 55-60%
Perhaps a canary in the coal mine, we’ll be watching the Consumer Discretionary sector which is showing a deceleration of -2.6%.
