Stocks Drop Despite Earnings

(Lee Siler) - Stocks took a hit yesterday despite a slew of positive earnings news. It appears that the recent run up in stocks prices was in anticipation of a better than expected third quarter with regards to profits. It is ominous that the market can't seem to chug higher in the midst of terrific quarterly reports.

Goldman and J & J Beat

(Lee Siler) - So far earnings season has started out with a bang. Alcoa got things started by beating estimates last week. Then this morning all eyes were on Goldman Sachs, which their results knocked the cover off the ball. The company reported a 33% rise in quarterly profits on very strong trading results. Certainly a good second quarter for the stock market helped buoy their report. Remember, last month Goldman paid back the TARP money they borrowed and is now the last investment bank standing. Earnings came in at $4.93 a share versus First Call estimates of $3.54 a share. This earnings report was no surprise to Wall Street, as the stock traded up over $8 a share yesterday in anticipation of a blow out number.
