    Earnings deluge could make or break sentiment

A wide swath of S&P 500 sectors are scheduled to report next week, with 155 companies representing over $9 trillion in market capitalization in the queue, more than 35 percent of the total for the index. "The focus is going to continue to be on earnings and what the message is and so far the message hasn’t been that great," said Ken Polcari, managing principal at Butcher Joseph Asset Management in New York.

    The initial earnings results of this reporting period are beating expectations by a wide margin, suggesting to some investors that the S&P 500 may be able to avoid a so-called "profit recession" this year because predicted economic bad news has failed to materialize. The quarter could be the trough for "this mini down cycle," said Keith Lerner, chief market strategist at SunTrust Advisory Services in Atlanta. The average earnings surprise so far is higher than what is typical.
