S&P500 Earnings Consensus For 2011

Barron’s came out with its “Fall 2010 Big Money Poll” on November 1.

There are a variety of statistics and poll results in it that I found interesting.

Of special note is the S&P500 2011 profit consensus of respondents, at $91.11.

There seems to be a growing overall consensus that S&P500 Operating Earnings will be in the $90-$95/share range.  This has been seen in numerous sources, some of which have been featured in past blog posts.


I post various economic forecasts because I believe they should be carefully monitored.  However, as those familiar with this blog are aware, I do not agree with many of the consensus estimates and much of the commentary in these forecast surveys.
