Expectations vs reality.....
How can a projection be a hoax?
I'd have to say that the vast majority of articles posted here have a bearish slant.

It's good to know that there's still at least one sane voice out there. Thank you, agip, for keeping it real.
I don't even want to speculate on what is going on in this thread. It's beyond my imagining.

Yes thank-you agip for toughing it out.
I found la gente and maserati to be particularly interesting posters because they would give their reasoning or thinking, la gente market-based and maserati socially-based.
While most of us play within the numbers, they seemed to take a look from outside, especially maserati who was maybe a bit too far outside sometimes.
But it was worth a read.
WTF happened to this thread? I tried reading back a few pages to catch up on recent posting, and it was like the lunatics were in control of the asylum!
Is the current Ghost the original Ghost, or has someone taken his place?
I don't "over emphasize" anything. I merely try to post the weekly earnings as reported by Factset. You're the one who gets his panties all in a wad because those numbers don't fit your narrative. Don't shoot the messenger.

Earnie(ings) Fact Check:
Here is the actual S&P 500 data:
One can see that earnings clearly peaked September 30, 2014 when the S&P 500 closed at 1,972. The optimistic projections for 2017 EPS is another hoax formulated by those that believe there is never not a time to buy stocks. And of course this fantasy is inflated further by the use of operating earnings or non-GAAP numbers as over emphasized by our friend Earnie.
In respect to others, I will do my best.
