BALTIMORE ( Stockpickr) -- Listen to the tone on Wall Street for a few minutes and it's easy to forget that we're still sitting on a 14% year for the S&P 500 right now.Analysts are predicting a drop in profits this earnings season, the first since investors climbed out of the financial crisis. This isn't a new thing -- since March, analysts have turned their earnings estimates lower for the whole broad market, underestimating actual earnings that have continued to move materially higher since the start of the year.
