Welcome to Capital Account. Just 30 percent of S&P 500 companies beat top-line expectations, while about 65 percent beat earnings expectations in the third quarter, according to Bloomberg. Also, half of the nation's 40 largest publicly traded corporate spenders have announced plans to reduce capital expenditures this year or next, according to a Wall Street Journal review of securities filings and conference calls.
