According to Anthony Saglimbene, global market strategist at Ameriprise Financial, “We’re pretty positive on the overall market; the 20% profit growth we’re expecting this quarter should be a fundamental anchor for stocks. But while financials have a good outlook, the results we saw today were mixed and the sector’s growth will probably underperform the S&P 500 this quarter.”
