Europe Incs thirdquarter profit outlook improves but still deep in red

LONDON (Reuters) - Earnings expectations for European listed companies improved slightly for the third quarter but the region is still stuck in a corporate recession, data published on Tuesday showed.

Companies listed on the pan-European STOXX 600 index <.STOXX> are expected to report a 6.6% decline in earnings for the July-September quarter, compared with an 8.4% drop expected a week ago, according to the latest data from I/B/E/S Refinitiv.

That would mark the third straight decline and worst quarterly performance since Q2 2016.

Revenues in the quarter are now expected to rise 0.8% versus last week's expectation of no growth.
