Stock Market & Economy Recap - Saturday, July 31
The majority of earnings and data continue to support an economic recovery. Progress on the infrastructure bill helped boost sentiment for the more cyclical sectors of the market. That may offset some of the “peak growth” concerns in the tech space.
Stock Market & Economy Recap - Saturday, July 24
It was a quiet week for economic data, so earnings took center stage. I expect to see a tug of war between fundamentals (earnings & interest rates) and near-term concerns (peak growth, inflation, delta variants, etc.).
Stock Market & Economy Recap - Saturday, July 17

Stock Market & Economy Recap - Saturday, July 3

The S&P 500 earnings per share increased to $191.93 this week. The forward EPS is now +20.7% year-to-date. All but three S&P 500 companies have now reported Q1 earnings. Q1 was another record quarter.
Stock Market & Economy Recap - Sunday, June 6
The economic recovery appears to remain in place. There are some signs the growth rate may be peaking, but that is to be expected. I’m watching for the shift in consumer spending from goods to services now that the economy is starting to reopen.
Stock Market & Economy Recap - Sunday, May 23
It was a slow week for economic data. Retail earnings took center stage. Earnings continue to be stellar, as 2021 earnings growth estimates are now +35%, and 2022 and 2023 earnings growth projections are +12% and +9%, respectively.
