NEW! Inside this PDF issue:

Wall Street thinks in terms of quarterly performance. This is true of both stock market indices and of individual corporate profits. With the books officially closed on the third quarter of 2018, the S&P 500 index enjoyed a quarterly gain of 7.2%, its best quarterly gain since the fourth quarter of 2013. (In fact, nearly 70% of the S&P 500’s year-to-date gains came in over the last three months.) Meanwhile, the blue-chip dominated Dow Jones Industrial Average jumped 9.3% in Q3.

The outperformance of U.S. stocks was largely due to stellar earnings growth, with the S&P 500 corporate earnings rising 25% YOY with more than 3/4 of companies topping analyst expectations, according to market data firm FactSet.

Despite the strong quarter, the S&P 500 index slipped 0.43% on moderate volume as the major index now sits just below a new all-time high.
