February Market Perspective
Markets took a bit of a break to start the year, as volatility pulled back earlier gains. The S&P 500 ended the month down 1.01 percent, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 1.95 percent. The Nasdaq Composite did better, finishing the month with a 1.44 percent gain.

These weak results came despite improving fundamentals. According to Bloomberg Intelligence, as of January 29 with 37 percent of companies having reported, blended earnings for the S&P 500 in the fourth quarter are down 1 percent. This is much better than the 8.8 percent decline analysts expected at the start of earnings season.
