Weekend Linky Dinks

Happy Saturday. The markets ended the week mixed following  volatile trading with varied earnings reports and a week that was domintaed by speculation regarding the government’s financial stress tests.

For the week, 143 S&P 500 companies reported quarterly results and although EPS fell ~40%, roughly 80 companies reports were better-than-expected, while 40 were worse-than-expected.  Revenue declined 10.6%, with roughly 30 posting positive results and 70 reporting sales that were worse-than-expected.
