The markets finished this week in mixed territory. We had to digest hundreds of earnings reports, had to endure an actually pleasant Bernanke, saw many economic numbers signalling a slowdown, and had to digest the war of Israel fighting Hizbollah going into what looks nothing short of an invasion set for tonight.

This week is a little different weekly wrap than on most weeks for a weekly wrap. In truth, we had approximately 200 earnings per day this week and trying to pinpoint all of these would turn into a novella and we could be here all weekend summarizing. So to keep this normal and timely, it seemed worth focusing on a key group. We have already had 16 of the DJIA 30 components either make their various earnings reports or issue guidance ahead of time.

So what we decided would be the best would be to compare the average DJIA component's earnings and their performance to the performance of the DJIA the day before it warned going into earnings season. We will show you how each component reported earnings without forward guidance, and how it has performed since each reported.
