Multi-year highs…

Equities got a boost this week from stronger than expected earnings reports out of Intel (NasdaqGS: INTC) report, United Technologies (NYSE: UTX) report and Apple (NasdaqGS: AAPL) report, just to name a few. This helped lift the Dow Jones Industrial Average to multi-year highs (chart).

If you are a bull, this is a much welcomed sight especially after last weeks earnings reports from Alcoa (NYSE: AA) and Google (NasdaqGS: GOOG). These companies came in under what the street was expecting and created some concern over the rest of this earnings reporting season.

Next week there will be no shortage of action as we continue to hear from corporate America and navigate through Q1 earnings.

Enjoy the holiday weekend 🙂
