    people got too bearish, IBM's report wasnt very positive

    But stocks pop big when too many people are bearish and buy put/get short.
    Much of the eps and margin beat was due to lower share count IMO and isn't sustainable. Not all clear skies ahead at all

    • No sales growth for most of the stocks in the market. It's buy back shares to boost eps and play currency games. Then the market goes up with free Bernanke money. The guy has printed 3T in 4 years. It's all an insider game. Bernanke & co call the banks and tell them what's next. As usual the FED is engineering another "crisis" down the road.

      Worse the government spent like crazy pre election trying to make things look better.

      • They tell the banks what's next? They tell everyone. You might ask why the ECB, BOJ and Swiss are printing like mad as well. Everyone is. Bernanke is like the valedictorian of a reform school.

        You don't get it. Everyone on the yahoo comment boards says the same thing and have been dead wrong. If you headed the Fed we'd have the Greatest Depression. You'd be fighting the last war, the one you saw going on when you were a kid.

        Hey, IBM's report wasn't too bad,eh?

    • hmmmm, I've heard that song for about the last 15 Quarters.
      Maybe one day you guys will be right?
