The market didn’t start the way we thought it would in 2014. I was in the camp of optimists believing the rally would continue with the earnings season. But there were some hiccups and the S&P 500 is down -3.56% and the S&P TSX was timidly up by 0.54%. The sad part is the hiccups came from the earnings. In other words: companies didn’t make as much profit as anticipated.
