U.S. Stocks Advance

The Director of research at Fenimore Asset Management in Cobleskill, New York, John Fox, said in a phone interview, “All the fundamentals still line up that stock prices can go higher. Interest rates are still low, the economy’s getting better. All of that is still a good environment for equities.” According to Bloomberg News, John Fox reported that “The few earnings that we’ve had so far have been coming in pretty well.”

Investors got some encouraging news about interest rates. “Investors were braced for poor results, and at least so far, the numbers have been better than feared,” said Lawrence Creatura, portfolio manager at Federated Investors according to CNBC.

The Federal Reserve’s latest policy meeting reassured investors that the central bank won’t move quickly to increase the  interest rates.
