We are in the middle of the Q2 earnings season with results from 208 S&P 500 members, representing 50.5% of the index’s total market capitalization, already out.

So far, total earnings of these 208 index members are down 4.7% year over year in spite of 0.4% higher revenues. However, 73.1% of the companies have managed to beat EPS estimates while 51.9% have exceeded top-line expectations.

For the technology sector, we have Q2 results from 61.4% of the sector’s total market capitalization in the S&P 500 index. So far, total earnings are down 8.2% year over year on 0.5% lower revenues, with 78.6% beating EPS estimates and 71.4% beating revenue expectations.

Just like other sectors, the performance of technology companies has been marred by global growth concerns, a strengthening dollar and market volatility. An added concern is Britain’s decision to exit the European Union.
