Founder and CEO Rebecca Corbin was featured on Bloomberg Radio’s Bloomberg Businessweek show to discuss Q4 earnings and expectations for the quarter on February 11, 2022. Rebecca joined hosts Carol Massar and Charlie Pellett for the 15-minute interview, which included findings from the Q4’21 Inside The Buy-side® Industrial Sentiment Survey.®
At the close of a day filled with geopolitical tensions that sparked volatile trading, Rebecca described the current market as having “strings that are taut,” reflecting investor sentiment two years into the pandemic. Still, while supply chain disruptions, inflation and the effects of the Omicron variant on absenteeism and labor supply will affect the first quarter, companies are still looking at a strong 2022.
While inflation concerns have been playing out since the first quarter of 2021, Rebecca said that demand and a record backlog have made investors more confident heading into this quarter. “There’s very little room for error on the demand side and that’s what we’re watching.”
“Companies that think about clouds on the horizon, prepare for vicissitudes in the market and make decisions with agility – those are the strong bets,” Rebecca said.
