In this episode, we run through the results of our latest quarterly RBC analyst survey, in which we poll the firm’s equity analysts on the outlooks for the industries they cover. The big things you need to know: First, outlooks for performance over the next 6-12 months remain optimistic, driven by constructive views on fundamentals, valuations, and cash deployment. Second, our analysts tilt most positive on Financials, Energy, Information Technology, Utilities, and Health Care, and least positive on REITs and Industrials. Third, policy outlooks generally remain cool, though it’s worth noting most see higher corporate taxes as a moderate problem for earnings and performance as opposed to a major one. Fourth, while margin expectations have eased only a handful of our analysts consider supply chains to be a major problem for the industries they cover.
