Growth to Slow in 4Q

Growth to Slow in 4Q

November 23, 2010

Third-quarter results from the MDM/Baird benchmarking survey had few overall surprises. After all, growth rates were pretty much right where respondents in the second quarter survey expected them to be.

And survey respondents expressed a "cautious optimism" looking into 2011. But what does that mean for the rest of 2010? What's expected from the fourth quarter when all is said and done?

Growth will continue, albeit at a slower pace than earlier this year, according to David Manthey, senior analyst with R.W. Baird & Co. "It's because we're looking at a year-over-year growth rate, and that continues to get more difficult," Manthey says.

Click on the video below to hear a clip from the interview with Manthey about the third-quarter benchmarking survey results.

The entire interview with Manthey is available in the November 2010 Executive Briefing, also featuring Brent Grover of Evergreen Consulting on Business Planning for 2011, or by visiting MDM's Streaming Media page.
