Ahead of the Bell: Dow futures are trading up 20 points and S&P futures are trading up 2 points after the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed above the 14K mark for a second time this year, teetering with an all-time high.  The lingering effects of the euro zone debt crisis and mixed economic data might limit gains today.  Retail sales figures, which will be out before the opening bell are expected to show how much the payroll-tax increase has hit consumer spending.   President, Barack Obama, provided little guidance as to whether the White House and Congress will come to a deal to head off the $85 billion of spending cuts that are set to go into effect as of March.

  • Other reports on the economic calendar today, include import and export prices for January, which will also be out prior to the opening bell, 0.3% is expected compared with -0.1% for December.

End of Day Report
Feb 12 2013 | 5:52 PM

Stocks ended the session mixed today, with the Dow hitting fresh multi-year highs as investors digested a handful of earnings reports and looked ahead to President Obama’s State of the Union address later this evening.  Market participants will be focusing on the automatic spending cuts that will kick in after March 1 if no action is taken by congress.  Financials led the S&P 500 while the tech sector dragged.


On the economic front, small business sentiment inched higher to 88.9 in January from 88.0 the month prior, as business owners are optimistic that conditions will steadily improve in the next few months despite the recent tax hikes.


According to Thomson Reuters, of the 353 companies in the S&P 500 that have reported earnings, 70.3% have beat expectations, and 65% over the past four quarters.


Have a great evening!      ...
