Industrial Stocks' Earnings Reports on Oct 28:SXI, B & GRC

With the Q3 earnings season taking center stage, investors are all eagerly waiting to note the daily beats and misses of the mega companies.

While estimating the performance of U.S.-based machinery stocks, we believe that factors like election-induced market instability, a strong U.S. dollar, weak energy resource prices, lackluster export numbers of China and the Brexit referendum might act as spoilsport. However, the time isn't ripe to draw any concrete conclusion, as the actual results might hold surprises.

According to the Zacks Industry classification, the industrial stocks are broadly grouped under Industrial Products, one of the 16 Zacks sectors.

Below, we briefly discuss the broader sectors' earnings trend so far in the Jul-Sep 2016 quarter.

Our latest Earnings Trend article (released on Oct 26, 2016) reveals that roughly 43.5% of the Industrial stocks in the S&P 500 Group have reported results for the July-Sep quarter, recording 3.9% rise in earnings and 5.9% fall in revenues on a year-over-year basis (y-o-y). We predict that earnings of all the industrial stocks in the S&P 500 Group will increase 5.9% year over year, however revenues are expected to inch down 0.7% over the same time frame.

What's in Store for these 3 Industrial Primes?
