Weekly Chartology And Q3 Earnings Preview
Next week 78% of the S&P companies will announce their Q3 results, (even as the the ratio of insider selling to buying hits the 5 digit range.) All cynicism aside, here is David Kostin's advance look at numbers and this week's complete charts that's fit to post. In a nutshell from Goldman: "Consensus expects 3Q earnings to be below 2Q actual results for six of ten sectors despite the US economy expanding during the quarter, albeit at a weak pace. We expect positive EPS surprises in 3Q but a restrained market reaction given the strong September rally and uncertainty surrounding the upcoming election and prospects for a second round of QE."
