Where do you use the S&P by years end?



January 13, 2011 – Comments (3) | RELATED TICKERS: RTH

So, I began to ask myself how will the S&P do this year and realized that I have no clue.  So I thought I would ask the question to teh Fool community.


So how about it Fools, where do you think the S&P will be by years end?

In nominal terms, or in real terms?  Depending on the strength/weakness of the dollar, it could go either way in nominal terms.  In real terms, I think we end 2011 down 20%.  The unemployment picture isn't improving, and I believe this will put a drag on consumer spending this year.  In addition, I believe a GDP favorable "inventory effect" will be reversed, putting an additional drag on GDP growth...GDP reports for the second half will miss recently raised estimates by a mile.  Also, we've seen some recent reports from food producers that margin compression is real and will be a significant problem going forward...I believe this will show across industries and FY'11 S&P EPS estimates will be missed by a wide margin.  I'll say the S&P closes at 1,030.

Good point.  So, for all intensive purposes, lets talk about nominal growth or declien in growth of the S&P.

Thanks Davejh23
