Since bottoming on Christmas Eve, the market has come a long way in a short time. Investors seemed to be feeling better about the future following better-than-feared 1Q earnings reports, though a presidential tweet has reignited concerns about a US-China trade pact that seemed to be a done deal. As it stands now, stocks appear to be fairly valued and their future direction will likely hinge on what happens to expectations for corporate profits.
