The Markets

(Michael Schwartz) - The stock market seems to be climbing the proverbial "wall of worry." Despite potential road hazards such as sovereign debt issues, rising interest rates, a weak job market, and a stalled housing recovery, investors bid up stock prices last week to an 18-month high, according to MarketWatch. Of course, these things could eventually affect stock prices, but, for now, stocks are riding the momentum of improving earnings and some underlying stability in the economy.

Stocks Look to Start on High Note

(Lee Siler) - Stocks are indicating a strong opening on the first trading day of the New Year. The question on everybody's mind is whether or not stocks can perform anywhere close to 09's performance? As intelligent investors, we know that at some point this year the Fed will start cutting stimulus to the economy and in fact, they already have to some degree. Considering we're at historically low interest rates there's only one direction they can go. Obviously, Wall Street is listening to every word the Fed says to try and get a clue when the tightening trend will begin.

Stocks Rally For the Week

(Lee Siler) - Stocks had their best week in months, as some of the old school companies blew out earnings estimates. Companies like Goldman Sachs, Intel and IBM all beat a pessimistic outlook, as it seems analysts may have taken their estimates way too low. Even the banks stocks are coming in better than expected. Bank of America and Citigroup beat views despite a credit loss. Thus far, the majority of companies reporting second quarter earnings are beating views. However, it is still very early in the season. This week will be extremely busy on the earnings front, especially in the tech sector.

Stocks Take Worst Hit in Two Months

(Lee Siler) - Markets got wacked yesterday, as the economic outlook for 2009 and 2010 was grimmer than initially expected. The World Bank, a government funded lender to poor countries, said the global economy will contract 2.9% this year. That's much worse than the 1.7% previous projected. The World Bank also cut its 2010 outlook to 2% growth versus its previous forecast of 2.3% for 2010. Also in the news, which shouldn't be a surprise, the government announced that they see unemployment getting to 10%. This was widely predicted, but finally confirmed.
