CFO Insights — Special Edition: CFO Signals — 2Q14 survey

Published on: Jul 07, 2014

For the last two quarters, there has been a significant disconnect between CFOs’ sentiment and their expectations. This quarter’s findings add little clarity.

CFOs’ steady optimism regarding their companies’ prospects and their improving year-over-year growth expectations seem to reflect growing confidence that conditions are stabilizing. But, CFOs’ weakening perceptions of major economies, lower growth expectations among U.S. CFOs, and faltering optimism among manufacturing CFOs suggest some unsettling undercurrents.
