Bernanke's New Rap

Let's give credit where it's due. The first discussions of QE tapering from Bernanke and the Fed were met with a nasty 6% stock correction.

Clearly they have analyzed what went wrong and have altered their message. Since then investors have responded more warmly to Fed updates with shares pressing to new highs and likely on the verge of hitting 1700.

The earnings bag is mixed so far versus heightened expectations. Most importantly, there is nothing ominous in the numbers that will keep the bias to the upside. So best start searching around for more stocks with upside potential. To help you in that effort you may want to check out this favored strategy of our value stock expert, Tracey Ryniec.
