It should be no surprise on down side as wall street has been banging on that drum for a while.

Consumers have to be cautious if earnings are a surprise to the upside. As we have seen the tug of war between the stock market and mortgage bonds for investor dollars, continued improvement in the stock market translates to higher cost of borrowing (higher mortgage rates).
