stock market volatility

After seven down days in a row, the markets roared back Monday and appeared to erase last week's sharp declines.

Apple's most recent earnings were nothing short of spectacular, and the headlines reflected that:

... "Apple Beats Estimates on Soaring iPhone Sales" -The Street

... "Apple Beats Estimates with $10.2 Billion in Profit" -

We've talked in the past about how far off the mark Wall Street analysts can be, and how costly that can be for investors who blindly follow along. It's no surprise - or at least it shouldn't be - given the hidden biases Wall Street holds.
