Wall Street bull to trot on

Barron’s annual analyst survey delivers a predicted increase in 2016’s S&P 500, but from interest rates to energy stocks, there are plenty of unknowns.

Summary: Ten strategists surveyed by Barron’s have predicted gains for the S&P 500 in 2016, but remain concerned about a number of trends in the year ahead – including the effects of interest rate rises, strength of the US dollar, and scarce profit growths across several sectors. Analysts appear measured in their predictions for the coming year, but favour financials and technology for 2016.
