S&P500 Q4 Earnings Collapse

I have a few S&P500 earnings posts in the queue, but Bob Bronson’s chart was a good place to start. Bob notes that the S&P has finally updated their 4Q earnings, which (predictably) have collapsed.

If you recall my November Barron’s interview, the collapse of earnings was what prevented me from becoming too bullish then, even though we were expecting.
