The market didn’t start the new trading week nearly as bullishly as it ended the previous one. When all was said and done, the S&P 500 ended the day a tad in the red, led lower by no stock in particular.

The Nasdaq, the Dow Jones industrial average and the S&P 500 did all lose some ground last month, as there were few earnings reports to help buoy them. That will soon change, for better or worse.
