So far this earnings season, the spread between the percentage of companies raising guidance minus lowering guidance is -9.2 percentage points.  As shown below, that’s the lowest reading seen since the two quarters that came right at the end of the financial crisis.  Pretty amazing that the only time this many companies have been this negative over the last 10 years was when the S&P was nearly 1,400 points lower than it is now.
