Editor Allan Leibowitz comments on the news of the week
The financial reporting season generates some interesting insights into the broader market. This week, we include results from Konecranes and JCB - both a bit more cautious about the future than other giants in the sector. Konecranes says customers are cautious about investing because economic growth has decelerated across the globe. It notes market uncertainty in North America, in particular.
