Market Extra: Stock-market bulls look for earnings to trump trade-war fears

Intensifying trade-war fears have been intermittently playing havoc with global markets for more than six months, but haven’t been enough to keep a resilient stock market down. Now, with earnings season set to get under way in earnest, some investors are ready to turn their focus elsewhere.

“I think the trade worries are probably on the back burner short term, at least as we go through earnings season and may be until a bit later in the year,” said Kate Warne, investment strategist at Edward Jones, in a Tuesday interview.

Stocks rose for a fourth straight day on Wall Street Tuesday, with the S&P 500 SPX, +0.35% rising 0.3% to post its highest close since Feb.
