With more than 75% of S&P 500 earnings now booked, U.S. firms continue to broadly outperform, Deutsche Bank notes, with a 76:22 beat-to-miss ratio, following an 83:16 ratio in Q3 and 76:23 in Q2. Some of that may be due to analyst lag, but European stocks continue to trail their U.S. brethren, with a beat/miss ratio of just 57:43 this quarter.
