We are halfway through the June quarter earnings season, as measured by the number of S&P 500 companies that have reported earnings.

Q2 earnings season so far: About 56% of S&P 500 companies have released their financial results, with 73% reporting earnings increases and 66% reporting revenue increases, FactSet said in its weekly Earnings Insight report. The composite earnings growth rate for S&P 500 companies in the second quarter is 6%, the lowest since 4% growth in the fourth quarter of 2020, the company said.
