We are rapidly approaching the end of the third-quarter earnings season. Despite the not-so-awesome earnings results, the market keeps moving higher.

For the quarter, about 70 percent of S&P 500 (INDEXSP:.INX) companies beat their substantially lowered expectations, registering 4.5 percent profit growth against estimates of just 3.4 percent, according to Bespoke Investment Group. That's the second-worst quarter since the market hit its March 2009 lows. In addition, barely more than half topped their revenue estimates.
