Earnings season begins today with Alcoa. The majority playbook, which we have telegraphed for a month, is to ride the wave off the March 6th lows going into earnings season, then lighten up as stocks move sideways to down on the back of VERY CONSERVATIVE guidance.
Futures moved up about 4 points, then back down into negative territory, as March saw 663,000 jobs lost and an unemployment rate of 8.5 percent, in line with expectations. February was unrevised, but January did see a steep downward revision, from 655,000 jobs lost to 741,000 lost.
Lots of cross-currents today. The bad news is the ADP report was very poor, implying that nonfarm payrolls on Friday will be weaker than expected. But there is good news as well, as the ISM report, as well as GM and Ford's February sales reports were, as they say, "less bad."
Investors piled into safe harbors as fears rose over a Greek exit on Friday, sending bond yields tumbling.
Earnings season has begun, but instead of falling apart because of the negative earnings environment, the S&P has rallied 1.25 percent since Alcoa reported.
Initial public offering activity in the first quarter of 2015 was at half the levels for deals in the same period of last year.
Not many retailers still report monthly same store sales, but among the few that do, the results for March are a bit disappointing.
