11:25AM: Over 80% of the S&P 500 companies have now reported, and operating earnings in aggregate for those companies are on track to post 25% year-over-year growth...this marks the fourth straight quarter of above 20% growth...there was some disappointing guidance for technology companies, but overall, guidance was a result, earnings forecasts for the third quarter remain between 14% and 15%...not much change and still a very strong growth number, especially considering that the comparison for the third quarter is much more difficult than it was for the second quarter...NYSE Adv/Dec 1093/1959, Nasdaq Adv/Dec 757/2268

11:00AM: Crude oil prices are off 30 cents this morning despite the heightened terrorist concerns...that is helping the stock market show a restrained response as well...indices have shown no tendency to break down this morning...gains over the past week have helped set a better tone...earnings reports from technology companies have pretty much finished up, and it was warnings from those companies that caused much turmoil, so that risk is also lessened...not surprisingly, volume is light on this first trading day of August...NYSE Adv/Dec 982/1992, Nasdaq Adv/Dec 682/2307
