BALTIMORE ( Stockpickr) -- Earnings plus Thursday's regular dump of economic data are putting the onus on the fundamentals today, as investors wait to see whether companies hit their numbers -- and whether everything from this morning's jobs data to this afternoon's Fed update hits the mark. A big earnings beat from high-profile General Motors (GM) should help buoy stocks more than most this morning.Like I said on Monday, "sell in May and go away" isn't looking like a good plan for investors this time around.
