The second quarter earnings season is winding down with results awaited primarily from the retail sector. As of Aug 5, we have results from 433 S&P 500 companies (or 87.7% of the index's total market capitalization). The numbers are bleak with total earnings down 4.1% from the same period last year on 0.9% lower revenues.

It is now clear that the second quarter is headed to be the fifth consecutive quarter of earnings decline. Notably, the rate of decline has slowed down slightly from the previous quarter.

The technology sector has performed better-than-expected with giants like Facebook  FB and Alphabet  GOOGL beating expectations and registering strong growth on a year-over-year basis. We have earnings from over 88.1% of the sector's total market cap in the index. Total earnings of these tech companies are down 0.8% from the same period last year in spite of 2.4% higher revenues.
