Goldman Sachs: S&P 500 at 4 300 in 2021
Information is not investment advice
S&P 500 is widely considered as the best measure of the US stock market and an indicator of the overall US economic health. Therefore, you can look at the performance of the S&P 500 and get a good overview of what was going on during the chosen period.
Looking back at 2020
S&P 500 dropped enormously at the beginning of 2020 amid the market crash after the Covid-19 outbreak. The stock index experienced an unprecedented swing down from 3 400 to 2 200. Since then, S&P has regained its losses and even outrun as the market shock passed and businesses started to adapt to the new conditions.
Light at the end of the tunnel
The year-end is getting closer, but most economies still haven’t been able to return to pre-crisis levels. Analysts predict that some countries will fully recover only by the end of 2021, while others only by 2022. Luckily, widespread vaccinations have already started, and that will help to take the Covid-19 spread under control. It added optimism to the market, and S&P 500 surged on hopes for further economic growth and prosperity. In fact, stocks always fall before a recession and rise ahead of recovery.
According to Goldman Sachs, the stock rally will continue in 2021 as the global economy will regain pre-pandemic levels after the vaccine rollout. The price target for 2021 is 4 300 and for 2022 – 4 600! Goldman Sachs explains such a huge increase by a surge in corporate profits next year in the technology, materials, and consumer-discretionary sectors.
