Futures indicated a lower open for Wall Street Wednesday as cautious words from Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke and Yahoo's missing revenue expectations lent to investors taking profits.
Another wave of much better-than-expected corporate results Tuesday shows that Wall Street's analysts have badly miscalculated earnings this quarter.
After hours investors sifted through results from Apple, Yahoo! and a string of other companies; will the latest round of earnings keep the rally going?
If Yahoo has proven over and over again, it's that this is a multi-quarter story, and that a single quarterly report doesn't do the turnaround justice.
A late rally pushed stocks higher Tuesday following better-than-expected earnings from several Dow components. The Dow logged its seventh-straight gain, the Nasdaq, it's tenth.
The Dow advanced Tuesday as a slew of components beat earnings expectations. But there were pockets of weakness throughout the market, including chips, hardware, banks and retail. The Nasdaq was lower.
With the S&P almost 10% higher in 2 weeks, can stronger-than-expected earnings continue to boost this market?

One of the few shining stars in the recession has been tech ETFs. The Nasdaq 100 index is up 26 percent year-to-date, and was the first major index to turn positive this year. But we’re now in the thick of the real test for technology: earnings season...

Though the S&P 500 and Dow ended Friday little changed, the move for the week was anything but small with both indexes holding onto enormous rallies.
Google continues to be an enigma, making more money than anyone else as a tech company, a media company, a company generating enormous cash flow yet holding onto its wallet in a cost-control way this company has really never seen before.
I went out on a limb on Friday, suggesting that Social Networking is the technological emperor with no clothes since I haven't seen a single business model out there that actually generates any money. And it's certainly not for a lack of trying, along with some brilliant minds, who've had plenty of time to come up with something real.
