Broader Index & Global Market:

Though the negative earnings surprises undoubtedly played a part in the sell-off of these marquee tech names, its hard to ignore the worsening macro environment and larger anxieties about growth and volatility that are forcing investors to look for safety. Evidence of this trend came from the still thriving retail sector.

During last week's earnings release, Walmart, the largest big-box retailer, reported a rise in quarterly sales and boosted its profit outlook for the year. Its online sales also surged, offering yet more clear proof that it's well on track to take on its main rival, Amazon. The major takeaway from this earnings season: companies are facing cost pressures as wages and interest rates rise. That trend, combined with global growth worries and trade war anxieties, will make it very difficult for even healthy companies to produce stunning earning results going forward.
