We are in the thick of the second-quarter earnings season, with as many as 1000 companies, including 116 S&P 500 members, scheduled to post their financial numbers this week. By the end of next week, we will have seen Q2 results from more than 87% of the index members.

Results so far have shown a modest improvement from the extremely weak levels over the last couple of quarters. However, growth is still non-existent, with Q2 likely to be the fifth quarter in a row of earnings decline for the S&P 500 index.

Coming to the technology sector, we now have results from 84.6% of the sector's total market cap in the index. The results here so far have been notably better than expected. Total earnings in this sector are down 0.9% from the same period last year in spite of 2.1% higher revenues, with 83.3% of the companies beating EPS estimates and 77.8% surpassing revenue expectations.

We believe software will remain attractive because it is hard to commoditize and easy to patent. Moreover, it serves as the foundation for the ongoing revolution in computing, security, networking and e-commerce among other things, keeping investors' interest in the sector alive.
