Earnings took center stage this week, on Monday U.S. stocks rallied as optimism over company earnings led to a rebound from last week’s selloff. Shares of Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) climbed 2.1 percent during regular trading, the company projected better-than-expected revenue for the holiday season. Sears (NASDAQ: SHLD) jumped 23 percent after announcing its plans to raise capital. But technology giant IBM (NYSE: IBM) fell 7.1 percent on a reduced outlook.
Tuesday turned out to be the best day of the year for the S&P and NASDAQ. It was a day of strong market gains which cemented the view that the worst is probably over. Apple, Texas Instruments (NASDAQ: TXN), and Verizon Communications (NYSE: VZ) all surged on corporate earnings, while Coca-Cola (NYSE: KO) and Chipotle (NYSE: CMG) were active to the downside.
Existing home sales rose a solid 2.4 percent in September. Year-on-year, however, sales remain flat. U.S. earnings season was in full swing on Wednesday, but stocks ended sharply lower following a drop in oil prices. Also a shooting inside the Canadian parliament was cited as a negative factor. The Labor Department’s Consumer Price Index was up 0.1 percent in September, illustrating tame inflation that should allow the Fed to keep interest rates low for a time.

But AT&T (NYSE: T), Yelp (NYSE: YELP) and Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) earnings were on the downside. Initial jobless claims did rise up 17,000 to 283,000, but it’s still slightly better than the previous market consensus.
