How Far Will Profits Fall?

利润会跌到什么程度?

Source: https://fortune.com/longform/corporate-profits-earnings-2020-outlook-fortune-500-companies-guidance/

背景:今年4月,可口可乐的CEO詹姆斯•昆西在被问到公司未来几个月的营收预测时,给了一个往年绝不可能来自财富500强企业高管的回答。他举起双手作投降状,说:“当下的环境充满不确定性,我们认为理智的做法是暂时不提供2020财年的预测。”今年,标普500指数中的超过100家企业宣布不会尝试预测2020年的结果,包括纸业巨头金佰利克拉克、信息技术公司IBM和因特尔。迷雾之中,我们更加迫切地想知道,利润会下跌到什么程度?重启经济后,复苏的前景又如何?作者认为,即使在最理想的状态下,国民生产总值也不会恢复到2019年的高点。一方面,疫情之下,航空和能源等行业遭受重创,不少企业申请破产保护,要恢复原来的经营能力需要时间。另一方面,2019年的欣欣向荣是由低人力成本和消费意愿高涨等多重因素为基础,不可持续也极难复制。
