Disclaimer: I am not qualified to make any of the predictions I’m about to make.
(1) The Dow and S&P 500 will end 2018 up 15%. That will put the Dow at 28,427 and the S&P 500 at 3074. I think the bull market rally will continue on in 2018 and the growth will be about double the average growth of the US markets over the last 100 or so years. I think that the technology, financial, and consumer discretionary sectors will lead. Some of the growth in 2017 was due to the optimism that surrounded the tax reform bill. I actually think that optimism was a bit subdued and I expect 2018 to grow at above average rates because of the reality of the tax reform implementation.
