Industrial Products' Earnings Slated on Feb 13: MPSX, SITE

In the U.S., Industrial Products was one of the sectors that was adversely impacted by the uncertainties that gripped the global arena in 2016. These uncertainties included weak commodity prices, low demand in the energy sector, poor economic conditions in some developed and developing nations, the U.K's decision to exit the European Union, and unfavorable foreign currency movements.

However, the adverse impacts of the above-mentioned headwinds seem to be ebbing while the policies of the newly elected President Donald Trump is seen favoring the company.

Industrial Products is one of the 16 broad Zacks sectors. Below we briefly discuss the sectors' earnings trend so far in the Oct-Dec 2016 quarter.

Per the Earnings Trends dated Feb 8, 2017, roughly 77.3% of Industrial stocks that reported their results (as of Feb 8) recorded a 9.4% growth in earnings and 4.8% growth in revenues.
