|Trading Radar: Put On Your Year-End Rally Cap|
Stay one step ahead of the rest.
Earnings season has now came to a close and for the most part, reports were better than expected. Thanks to cost cutting methods the majority of the companies were able to post bottom line beats.
Earnings were surprisingly better than expected and most major brokerage firms lifted their 2010 EPS forecasts on the S&P 500. Goldman Sachs raised its forecast to $75 and Citigroup moved its to $72.50.
With earnings now out of the way, investors will be turning their attention to the much anticipated year-end rally. Will the underperforming funds chase performance into 2010?
