We've seen lots of conflicting headlines the last couple of days following the Fed's decision to print away and flood the markets with more dollars.

Several resulting scenarios are being discussed by analysts, with many conclusions being not too optimistic. I am certainly worried about the potential for hyperinflation, which could make the Fed plan look even more reckless. At this point, we are evaluating what we are seeing on the tape, but also looking to which companies stand to benefit the most in this current environment. We added two new names to our recommended list this morning, so be sure to check out the link below if you did not read this morning's e-mail alert.

As for today's action, we saw positive earnings reactions to Starbucks ( SBUX ) and fertilizer play CF Industries ( CF ). The strength in financials continued for a second day in a row. Big gains from Wells Fargo ( WFC ), Goldman Sachs ( GS ), and JP Morgan ( JPM ), as the potential for dividend increases makes the Wall Street rumors round. We have avoided the space specifically for the lack of healthy dividend payouts, so we'll see if there is any truth that substantial dividend increases could be in the cards.

Looking ahead to next week, we get more big-company earnings, led by Walt Disney ( DIS ), Tyco International ( TYC ), and Weight Watchers ( WTW ).
