Reporting season is well under way, and we are seeing manufacturers with increased sales and revenues, but their profit margins under pressure.
This is largely because the sales performance is a result of bulging order books and supply chain bottlenecks which have prevented the factories from filling orders. We are aware of ongoing shortages, although the situation seems to be improving in many markets.
The question, of course, is whether the strong sales growth can be sustained, especially in a high-inflation environment. One hint that things may start to slow is the recently released economic activity report from the Institute for Supply Management (ISM). The latest index shows falls in order backlogs, new orders and prices. So, in the United States at least, it looks like after 29 consecutive months of economic growth, things are cooling down.

During the Greek uprising in March 1821, the Ottoman forces ran out of ammunition and started to chip away at the lead joints that held together the pieces of marble that made up the Parthenon. When the Greeks found out, they decided to sell bullets to the Turks so that they would stop destroying the ancient monuments.
