Goldman Says S&P 500 to Rise 8% in 12 Months on Economy – Bloomberg 08-13-13

Salient to Investors:

David Kostin at Goldman Sachs said the S&P 500 will climb to 1,750 at year-end, to 1,825 in the next 12 months and 1900 at year-end 2014, as economic growth gains momentum, and recommends companies that generate most of their revenue domestically.  Kostin said the real issue is that rising interest rates are a reflection of a better economy, and the best place to invest is the US through year-end.

The average US equity strategist predicts the S&P 500 will retreat to 1,677 by December.

The S&P 500 is at 16.3 times earnings, near the highest level since May 2010, but 16 percent below the average since 1998.
