Barclays on U.S. Multi-Industry: Cutting Estimates: FX and Macro Headwinds

Analyst, Scott R. Davis, said, "We are lowering earnings estimates for 2012 and 2013 by ~2-3% on average; highly dependent per company on international exposures. Recent movement in the Euro/$ and general macro slowdown are the biggest drivers. We now expect most companies to miss top-line estimates until guidance/forecasts are reset in July. Our earnings cuts are less than some might expect because of margin tailwinds - which are rather significant. Material costs are falling, discretionary expenses falling, and mix should remain positive at least through end of 2012."
