Markets Move Higher Despite Wal-Mart's Negative Earnings

Jason Weisberg of Seaport Securities said that market events like Facebook's acquisition of WhatsApp for a lofty price demonstrate strength in the market. He points out that the overall trend in the market is positive and expects stocks to continue moving higher. Weisberg also said Wal-Mart no longer affects the market like it did in the past due to online shopping.
