With 404 S&P 500 Index companies having reported second quarter 2018 earnings results, a solid 79% have exceeded earnings targets, delivering robust 23.5% year-over-year growth on a nearly 3% upside surprise. Revenue growth of 9.2% is a solid 1.1% above expectations. (LPL)

S&P 500 on its hottest streak of the year. The S&P 500 capped its fifth straight positive week. The first such streak since the week ending Dec. 22, 2017. Five-week winning streaks are a rare feat of strength for the S&P 500: the index has posted 8 five-week winning streaks since February 2013 (and five 6-week winning streaks over that same period). The S&P 500 gained 0.8% last week.  (LPL)
