Stocks Poised For More Gains As Earnings Season Begins

Stocks opened in record territory yesterday, before closing mixed by day's end. But the major indexes remain only ticks away from their all-time highs.

Simply put, the economy is doing well. Employment looks great. The Fed has pledged their support for the expansion, with many expecting a rate cut at their next FOMC meeting at the end of the month. And earnings season, which typically sends stocks higher, has just 'unofficially' begun this week.

I'm expecting more new highs for the market. And I'm expecting the second half of the year to be just as good as the first half.

Today we'll get another look at the health of our economy with the Retail Sales report and Redbook numbers, Housing Market Index, Business Inventories, and Industrial Production.

As I've been saying, these are historic times for the economy and the market.

So make sure you're taking full advantage of it.

See you tomorrow,

Kevin Matras
