Q: What does "margins and guidance (in 6th paragraph)" mean?

Context>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Stocks fell sharply Tuesday, giving up earlier gains as traders were left disappointed with the latest batch of earnings while interest rates jumped to levels not seen in years.

The Dow were down more than 500 points after dropping more than 600 points, with 3M as the worst-performing stock in the index. The S&P 500 fell 1.6 percent, with consumer staples and technology sliding. The Nasdaq declined 2 percent as shares of Facebook, Amazon, Alphabet and Netflix all dropped more than 4 percent.

"Investors have high expectations for earnings," said Kate Warne, an investment strategist at Edward Jones. "At the same time, a lot of people are asking: Does it get better from here? I think that's why we're seeing such shifts in the market."

Before the bell, 3M reported quarterly earnings that met analyst expectations, but the stock dropped about 7 percent. Caterpillar also erased earlier gains, trading 6.3 percent lower.

Investors initially cheered the latest corporate earnings, sending the Dow higher by 131 points at its session high. United Technologies, Verizon and Coca-Cola reported better-than-expected earnings.

"I just think rates are a wet blanket. Plus look at the response to earnings. Look at Google, 3M, Caterpillar was up \$6 this morning, and now its down \$7. It's this violent reaction to earnings," said Peter Boockvar of Bleakley Financial Group. "When you get this type of earnings performance it tells you a lot is priced in and people are looking at margins and guidance. When rates rise people have less tolerance for any mistakes. Even the slightest hiccup, or wrinkle is being highlighted in this type of environment," Boockvar said.
A: Hahaha this is rather spefic to finance.
In this context:
Margin(Financial accounts) refers to the income statements of the company.

Guidance refers to the projections of the earnings of the near future. This guides investors and reduces the likelihood of overvaluation.
(this is very simplified, but I hope this answers your question.) :)
