*-- Up reversals reflect companies which reported per-share profits this year against losses a year earlier. Down reversals reflect losses this year and gains last year.

**-- Year-Over-Year comparisons are based on earnings per share figures for the S&P 500 as a whole. These comparisons should only be used as a guide to year-over-year performance due to the differences in members of the S&P 500 index in Q1/13 and Q1/12. For S&P 500 Index members change, please see {ADD <GO>}.

#-- Estimates were used for those companies that have not yet reported for the quarter. For details of the calculations, please see the attachment {97 <GO>}.

@-- The number of companies reported is different than what is found on the EA <GO> earnings function due to rounding differences in estimates. Washington Post and Leucadia National do not have Q1’13 estimates, hence, the surprises numbers are less than the total reported numbers.

^-- Included in the total up/down eps counts.
