The December 2017 Livingston Survey published on December 15, 2017 contains, among its various forecasts, a S&P500 forecast. It shows the following price forecast for the dates shown:
Dec. 30, 2017 2644.8
Jun. 30, 2018 2739.8
Dec. 29, 2018 2805.0
Dec. 31, 2019 2980.0
These figures represent the median value across the forecasters on the survey’s panel.
I post various economic forecasts because I believe they should be carefully monitored. However, as those familiar with this site are aware, I do not agree with many of the consensus estimates and much of the commentary in these forecast surveys.
The Special Note summarizes my overall thoughts about our economic situation
