Another busy week of earnings on tap. A very strong earnings season continues this week with 127 S&P 500 companies reporting. With about two-thirds of companies having reported, S&P 500 earnings for the first quarter of 2017 are now tracking for a 13.6% year-over-year increase, well above the 10.2% increase expected. The 77% earnings beat rate thus far, should it hold, would be the best since 2010. (LPL Research)
