NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- After a positive Martin Luther King Jr. holiday including an upbeat inauguration for President Obama's second term, the "bull market" appears ready to charge ahead. Earnings season has been mainly upbeat and mostly positive.Two very important companies stepped into the earnings spotlight before the market opened on Tuesday. Neither one sorely disappointed or offered any gloomy guidance going forward. If you've been waiting for a correction to buy, the response so far to Tuesday's earnings parade means you may have to wait longer.
