Stocks are essentially flat this morning after a huge earnings morningin which 3 Dow components and 12 percent of the S&P reported.
After snapping its 7-day winning streak yesterday, the Dow will look to regain momentum in its current 9 percent rally, while the Nasdaq will look to extend its impressive current 11-day winning streak.
Here’s a quick look at some of the highlights from the earnings-palooza this morning:
Ford up 9 percent after turning in a narrower-than-expected Q2 loss (21 cent loss vs. 50 cent loss est.). The automaker burned through $1 billion in the quarter, but that was down significantly from the $3.7 billion it went through in the first quarter and $7 billion it burned in the last quarter of 2008.
