  • Deflationary pressures in consumer packaged goods are abating, but competition is still running high.
  • In media, advertising spending continues to improve and, as usual, content is still king in the entertainment world.
  • The second half of 2010 in retail will likely be weaker than the first half as difficult comps approach and soft income growth lingers.
