Warren Buffett and Jamie Dimon are doubling down on their plea for corporations to stop providing quarterly earnings guidance.
Dimon, who leads the Business Roundtable, an association of chief executive officers of leading U.S. companies said the move is supported by the group, added the report.
Neither Buffett, chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway Inc.in Omaha, or Dimon, chairman and CEO of JPMorgan Chase, predict their profits every three months.
Dimon, is chairman of the Business Roundtable, an association of almost 200 CEOs that is also backing the push to eliminate so-called short-termism.
Dimon said CEOs can influence their quarterly results by not opening branch offices, cutting research and development spending, reducing their marketing and other decisions that could hurt future earnings.

Dimon said Thursday that about 20 percent of Business Roundtable members still do quarterly guidance and about 60 percent provide annual targets.
