Investors are witnessing a situation where positive momentum is driving stock indexes higher. For instance, 75% of the companies that have reported earnings this season have exceeded expectations. Although the sample size is small, considering predictions of an earnings recession, this cannot be ignored.

However, investors should not ignore the negative economic data. The leading economic indicators index and the Philly Fed manufacturing survey both indicate a recession.

Next week, the earnings season will pick up steam. Investors will hear from companies like Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT), Meta Platforms, Inc. (NASDAQ: META), and Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ: GOOGL). Additionally, the Federal Reserve is expected to raise interest rates by 25 basis points during their meeting.
