According to MarketWatch, investors remained focused on bank earnings this week, and what the numbers and management commentary say about the broader U.S. economy, Tom Essaye, President of the Sevens Report wrote in a Thursday note to clients. Commentary from banks executives has been "better than feared," he continued. "The numbers themselves are OK, but not great, while the commentary is reassuring, but not overtly optimistic," Essaye argued. "Given very low expectations [for the financial sector] heading into this earnings season, the better-than-feared result is helping markets rally, but it's not enough to cause a material move higher in stocks through what we think is the higher end of the current range (2720ish)."
