The interactive above highlights three key trends:
Turbulence strikes more frequently than in the past. More than half of the most turbulent quarters over the past 30 years have occurred during the last decade.
Turbulence has increased in intensity. Volatility in revenue growth, in revenue ranking, and in operating margins have more than doubled since the 1960s.
Turbulence today persists much longer than in preceding periods. The average duration of periods of high turbulence has quadrupled over the past three decades.
