Here are some excerpts from this morning’s New York Times:

“The chip maker Advance Micro Devices topped earnings expectations for the quarter.”

“GE posts earnings that exceed forecasts.”

“McDonald’s profit is up.”

“DuPont tops forecasts; profit up 27%.”

“Blackrock earnings increase 34%.”

“Real estate helps profit increase 58% at Blackstone.”

“Xerox reports rise in profit and revenue.”

And the NY stock market hit a 33-month high!
