English term or phrase:Wall Street's consensus quarterly earnings projections
But at the same time, the American corporation enters the 21st century burdened by great expectations. By almost any measure, the corporate sector is far more competitive and efficient today than it was before the draconian restructurings of the 1980s. Even so, investor pressure to post demonstrable gains every quarter is, if anything, more intense than ever. Woe betide the company that misses Wall Street's consensus quarterly earnings projections by a few pennies. It is a hotly debated question whether the Street's demand for instant results is forcing additional improvement or undermining long-term performance.
