Recommended Posts

Corporate profitability is expected to have accelerated again during the first three months of the year, offering investors some reason for optimism after a punishing stretch in financial markets, writes Ben Eisen and Akane Otani.

S&P 500 firms are forecast to report profit growth of 17% in the first quarter of 2018 from a year earlier, according to reported results and analysts’ forecasts compiled by FactSet. If that holds up when earnings season kicks off in earnest, it would mark another strong period of earnings in what has become a lengthy string of robust quarters.

Below, some of the best analysis and insight from WSJ writers and columnists, and occasionally beyond, on investing, the wealth-management business and more.
