THE DIGITAL STRENGTH INDEX
Q3 2017 QUARTERLY GROWTH REPORT
For our first Quarterly Report, Isobar and alpha-DNA take a look back at Q3 2017 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.
This quarter, the top 10% of the top 1,000 public companies in the U.S. outperformed the remaining 90% combined.
Energy is the big winner this quarter. Oil and gas companies are using digital to dramatically cut costs, and improve speed and decision-making.
Utilities did not meet expectations. Unsurprisingly, they move at a glacial pace with expensive assets and regulation.
As the economy continues to plow ahead, Industrial industries such as Airlines, Machinery, and Construction should continue to do well. The sector as a whole is below average in the DSI, putting them at greater risk if the economy starts to falter.
