CEOs Rate Economy

The Conference Board Measure of CEO Confidence, which had declined in the third quarter of 2015, decreased further in the fourth quarter. The Measure now reads 45, down from 48 in the third quarter of 2015 (a reading of more than 50 points reflects more positive than negative responses). “Confidence among CEOs weakened further in the final quarter of 2015,” said Lynn Franco, director of Economic Indicators at The Conference Board. “Expectations for the U.S and Europe are now slightly negative while expectations for emerging markets remain downbeat. Regarding prices in 2016, chief executives expect to hike prices by slightly less than 2 percent on average.”
