It's no secret that growth estimates for companies all over the world have been weak recently. We're written about the topic here and here in just the last week. What remains striking, though, is that six years into a recovery top and bottom line growth expectations remain weak. In fact, with expectations crumbling in North America over the last few months, EM Asia is the only region of the world in which sales are expected to growth north of 10% and EPS are expected to grow at least 5%. For everyone else - that is NA, Europe, Developed Asia, LatAm, and Eastern Europe - more muddling remains the reality.
