The earnings season continues to provide a mixed picture. In the latest round of reports we got a sweet beat from American Express which bodes well for consumer spending. That was followed by a sour pre-announcement by UPS that they will come up short of expectations in Q4 which says the opposite.
Right now I give this earnings season a grade of C. Not failing, but not impressing anyone.
On the economic front we actually got 3 solid reports on Friday. Housing Starts continues to impress even with higher mortgage rates. Industrial Production shows building momentum in the manufacturing space. And Consumer Sentiment remains at elevated levels.
The economic calendar is light this week. So all eyes will be on earnings as it comes into full swing. Let's hope Corporate America does some extra credit projects to get a grade of B or better before this earnings season ends.

Why I'm Investing $117,238 In This Stock
-Jeremy Phillips, Motley Fool Chief Technology Officer

But I'd rather not go on my million-dollar quest alone... so I'm inviting you to join me! You don't have to invest $117,238. But whatever amount you choose to put in, I advise you to do it NOW. Click here to discover my favorite stock!
