    Earnings season is now roughly 50% over with 230 of S&P 500 reported.

    • 75% beat earnings consensus by aggregate of 4.2%
    • Technology and Healthcare continue to show higher revenue and earnings growth. Sector price performance up .73% and .71% respectively.
    • Consumer discretionary appears to be a disconnect. Revenue growth pretty solid this quarter around 4%. Sector price performance continues to be weak down 1.03% last week.

    Economic data

    • Initial jobless claims down 19k in W/E July 19th.
    • Existing home sales up 2.6% sequentially (month).

    Excluding financials, the S&P earnings growth rate is at 8.5% this quarter. That's the highest level seen over the past 3 years.
