English term or phrase: flat results
Der ganze Satz:
The S&P is still negative for the year and in alternative investments the widely reported down grading of General Motor’s bonds while not directly impacting our portfolio to any great extent has caused managers to be cautious and post results of ***flat*** to negative for the year.

Ist mit flat hier sowas wie gleichbleibend gemeint? Und irgendwie stecke ich fest, denn negative wuerde ich hier als "im Minus" uebersetzen, aber irgendwie weiss ich nicht, wie ich das mit flat kombinieren soll (vielleicht wird es ja klar, wenn ich weiss, wie man flat uebersetzt).

nahezu unveränderte (gleichbleibende) Zahlen/Ergebnisse
Explanation:
Dieses Beispiel sollte die Bedeutung verdeutlichen:
Net income was $27.8 million compared to $27.1 million last year.
Diluted earnings per share were $0.74 versus $0.72 in 1998. However, as discussed below, while these are essentially ***flat results***, some important improvements were realized and investments made as we continue to transform the company into one that can provide a total array of solutions to meet our clients' information needs. Net cash provided by operating activities continued to be strong at $2.57 per diluted share compared to $2.71 a year ago.
