Consumer pullback toward the end of the third quarter could lead to lackluster results in November.
That's the saving grace where there is so much to dislike.
The New York Fed head, acting like a WWE superstar? Yep, and retail traders are feeling the pain.

GIS - General Mills Inc Annual Shareholders Meeting - 9:30AM
And right now, these stocks are mostly hated.

My Take on the U.S. Dollar Real Money Pro($)

"For the full fiscal year '16, based upon how the rates have been trending over the last few weeks, we currently assume the impact of FX on our results in USD will be negative 4% compared to fiscal '15." -- David Rowland, chief financial officer, Accenture (ACN) "Obviously the U.S. dollar strengthens, the Canadian dollars, the Euro, the Brazilian Real. So, yeah, we see more of a headwind on our reported results from currency." -- Donal Mulligan, chief financial officer, General Mills (GIS) "Specifically, for Q2, we expect reported revenue growth at a mid-single-digit rate, generally in line with the growth rate for Q1, reflecting low teens growth on a currency-neutral basis, largely offset by the impact of the stronger dollar." -- Andy Campion, chief financial officer, Nike (NKE) I thought earlier this year that the strong dollar's impact would start to wane somewhat as we entered 2016, but now we'll have to see if Yellen and crew actually tighten. I remain skeptical.
But don't toss out stocks just because the "action" is so negative.
There are sector stocks that are plummeting but that make more sense to buy than sell.
