January 29, 2008

Q1 Survey Analysis – January 2008We have reorganized the survey for this quarter. The new format makes it easier for you to track the changes historically, allowing you to spot trends. It also reduces the need for our commentary.The feds surprise reaction today is exactly the tonic that appears to be needed based on this survey-This survey shows several distinct trends:-This is now the third quarter in a row with a significant drop in companies reporting profitability.-The expectations for the coming quarter has dropped now for the second survey.-The decrease in hiring and the number of layoffs have both increased over the last survey – Both have accelerated.On a positive note- Companies are reporting a strong increase in orders over the last two weeks and this is the first survey in a while that Technology is less feared.The Quebcor news has many pluses and minuses for the industry as clients potentially shift vendors.If you have questions or would like us to add a question or topic please feel free to contact me directly – daver@semperllc.com Click here for the Results PDF
