ALL STOCKS SHOW EARNINGS New York, Feb. 11.—Looked at from any viewpoint, whether from that of the investor, speculator or daily trader, the stock market still remains a question of sentiment and international politics rather than of value. If values alone were to be considered it would be easy to buy stocks which would surely make one's fortune, for earnings reports continue to be record-breakers. " From the earnings point of view there are hardly any worthless stocks in Wall Street except those that have been introduced for pure ly jobbing purposes since the boom began. This condition of affairs would seem to make it the right time for investors to buy and a great many are doing so. But the great flood of investment money is timid, be cause down in its heart the investor is just as anxious to see his principal increase as he is to be sure of his regular income. The < German blockade remains the most important factor of the sit uation for on its efficiency depends the whole market The freight car blockade in the United States is the first result. Several factors in the situation are of such extreme importance that they will bear telling more than once. ) If the United States enters the war and the blockade remains effec tive, prices of materials in America will decline, wages will fall and the country will have a period of great prosperity, because its tremendous activities, having no other outlet will be devoted to a building-up of our own country. Should the blockade be effective and America keep out of the war, almost the same result will be seen except that less of the country's ac tivities would be devoted to the pro duction of war material. Thus the success of the blockade could not hurt the country as a whole although, war or no war, its success would hit the stock market because of the foreign profits that would be with-held from the great corporations.
