After the market closed yesterday, Microsoft executives stated on the earnings conference call that the company’s business, including smart cloud, has entered a cycle of slow growth, triggering a trend of technology stocks leading the decline at the beginning of today’s trading.

John Lynch, chief investment officer of Comerica Wealth Management, said that after seeing Microsoft negate the optimistic interpretation of the market, participants are no longer so confident in Google and other earnings reports.

More than 19% of S&P 500 companies had reported fourth-quarter results as of Wednesday’s close, with 68% of those reporting stronger-than-expected profits, the data showed.

Adam Sarhan, chief executive of 50 Park Investments, pointed out that the stronger-than-expected performance of most companies was mainly due to Wall Street’s previous lowered expectations, but in fact their prospects were bleak.

“If even companies are bearish about their futures, why should investors be bullish? That’s the message I’m taking from this earnings season,” Sarhan said.
