Today Experian and Moody's Analytics released the Q3 2018 Main Street Report. The report brings deep insight into the overall financial well-being of the small-business landscape, as well as providing commentary around what certain trends mean for credit grantors and the small-business community.
For Q3 2018, the overall outlook for small-business credit is positive, but some industries such as construction have a negative outlook.
Rising outstanding balances
Delinquency rates stable for now
Delinquency rates are stable around their current levels, but this could change quickly if risks mount for certain industries.
Continuing strength in the economy should keep small-business credit performance in check through the fourth quarter and early next year. Rising interest rates, destabilizing trade policy and slowing home-price growth are potential sources of trouble that are already starting to impact some regions.
