I’m Keith DeGreen and this is your Investors Minute.

Yesterday, I shared the downside factors that some companies will cite this earnings season – a slowing world economy, a rising dollar that hurts exports, and increased geopolitical risk.

We do take our clients to cash when our objective analytics say we should. But let’s also look at the good news we’ll hear this earnings season:

First, last quarter’s earnings will probably beat expectations; second, the Fed will likely keep rates low well into 2015; third, our economy is steadily improving; and fourth, despite increased geopolitical risk, oil prices have declined significantly. This reduces corporate expenses, and puts more money in the hands of American consumers.

Our conclusion regarding where markets are headed next? Tune in tomorrow and find out!
