The ABB earnings presentation sounds a lot like Caterpillar earnings, where weakness in China is being offset by strength in North America. ABB's order book in China is off 35% Y/Y, up 16% in the U.S. SEB notes the company saying it's uncertain when Chinese demand will recover vs. previously saying it appeared Chinese growth was returning.

    APPL, BMW, MB, KO, MCD, YUM, GM have or will produce the new China growth stories.
