Inside the Buy-Side® logo

“With recent Fed commentary easing interest rate tensions and investor expectations of a recession moderating, the New Year has brought with it a spoonful of optimism from the investment community — the extent of which we haven’t seen since December 2021. Indeed, the potential for rate cuts in 2024, coupled with better-than-expected consumer resiliency and steady job reports thus far, have catapulted equity and bond markets higher off October lows. But to be clear, we are not out of the woods yet. Perhaps the medicine that is needed is what are likely to be conservative guides crossing the airwaves this quarter, as executives hedge The Street’s optimism against the potential risks of the current operating environment we find ourselves in — namely, slowing growth, global macro uncertainty, particularly in China, and geopolitical risk contagion, which seems to be manifesting weekly. With notably fewer investors expecting a broad-based recession and the majority anticipating that annual guides will be higher than 2023 actuals, focus will be on 2024 outlooks and company positioning. Have we bottomed is the question and it’s critical that executives embrace candor and conservativeness amid continued heightened uncertainty, while also setting the stage for continued growth execution. Capital markets are opening up and deals, specifically megamergers and divestitures, are popping — 2024 is shaping up to be a business transformation-oriented year.”
