  • annuities

    So far, 18 percent of the S&P 500 has reported earnings, according to Standard and Poor's. This is still a small data base, but of that group, only 55 percent are beating expectations.

  • Greece

    Crunch time on Greece. A pause in the rally: Europe mostly weaker this morning, but only modestly, as traders wait word on whether there is a deal on Greece or not.

  • Microsoft

    IBM, Microsoft, and Intel all went into earnings with low expectations from the trading community, but all three generally did better than expectations.

  • The Parthenon in Greece

    The Greek government has approved a cut-rate plan for film crews and photographers: You can now rent the Acropolis for the day for a movie shoot, for $2,050 — slashed from $5,000.

    All's right with the world: Really? It sure looks like risk aversion is receding. Here's the evidence.

  • Stethescope and money

    While the whole market came off its earlier highs (Dow was up almost 150 points right after the open), financials led the decline shortly after 2pm ET, when many big names went into the red, and not just JPMorgan or Citi, both down all day. I said it this morning, I'll say it again: bank earnings estimates for 2012 look too high to me.

  • Greece

    Sounds like a shocking question, doesn't it? But it should be asked. By "default" I mean a disorderly default, outside the terms being negotiated now.

    The takeaway from bank earnings so far: "Very messy," one bank stock trader said to me.

    Euro yo-yo: Euro rallies on strong Spanish and Italian bond auctions, drops when European Central Bank leaves rates unchanged, rallies on poor U.S. retail sales and initial jobless claims.

    Another day, another bank rally — what gives? Bank of America up 6 of the last 7 trading sessions?! There is no dramatic news since January 1 to move these stocks. It's simple: no one owned them at the end of 2011 — the Street is underinvested, and they're playing catchup now.
