Given all the volatility that’s hit the market over the last few quarters, the last thing investors need is another worry to add to their lists. But that’s exactly what they are getting. And this time worry is, well, pretty serious. Earnings are starting to stall.

After years of steadily rising profits, the results for the latest quarter are beginning to look a bit anemic. While still growing, the pace of growth has slowed to a crawl.

That’s a huge problem given the bull market’s continued run and stocks’ overall valuations. For investors, it’s another reason why taking a cautious approach to the markets these days could be the best play. Ultimately, the slowdown in earnings growth is a troubling sign.
