As 2020 concerns a close, a selection of strategists have already offered their views about where they think the S&P 500 will end next year. With a vaccine, additional round of fiscal stimulus and economic recovery all very likely at play, consensus analysts believe the stock market is going to keep climbing.
Nevertheless, given that all these good catalysts are by now famous by market participants, a major danger to equities next year would be that a great deal of the recovery had been priced within, as reported by RBC Capital Markets.
On the broader US equity industry (S&P 500), the analysis of ours indicates that the recovery has space to work through an essential viewpoint, Lori Calvasina, RBC Capital Markets mind of U.S. equity approach, said to a note Monday morning. however, it also implies that a key danger for US equities in 2021 is usually that the recovery is mostly baked in already.

This very last item is important, since a sustained recovery in EPS growth expectations was a key pillar of support for stocks not just during the last several months, but during the 2009 recovery which 2020 is currently mimicking.
