Certainly, the Fed’s quantitative easing policy has generated plenty of attention, as investors worry about whether the Fed’s inevitable exit will destabilize the markets. But eventually, shareholders need to see positive results for the companies whose stock they own, and for that to happen, you need business prospects to improve.
