"A couple of weeks back, when markets were really getting hammered, the concern was whether earnings would come through, and so far they have. I suspect that we'll continue to see upside earnings surprises," he said, adding that he sees additional room to run higher on earnings momentum."We'll likely see some seasonal weakness in August on the dearth of information, and some people may start to worry again about a double dip, but we're not of that camp."
