  • You say you don’t want to compare to the craziness of the Great Depression? Maybe that leads to everything else looking calm and you don’t think that’s meaningful.

Opinion: Donald Trump is at the center of any stock market prediction for 2017 – MarketWatch

0

Last year, except for Great Britain’s vote to leave the European Union, which pummeled global markets for two days, politics had little effect on stocks until around Labor Day. So, this year, what the new president and Congress do will determine whether the Trump rally continues. Because labor productivity hasn’t been growing much, and there’s a little slack in the labor market. The first year of the Trump administration will see Congress repeal but not replace Obamacare, work on tax reform and clear several Cabinet nominees after spirited fights by Senate Democrats.

Key Takeaways:

  • Although Republicans swept the White House and the Congress in last year’s election, politics and policy will likely dominate 2017
  • Markets really took off only after the unlikely election of Donald J. Trump as Wall Street reversed itself and realized that though it didn’t like his temperament, his policies and appointments would be damn good for business.
  • So, this year, what the new president and Congress do will determine whether the Trump rally continues.

“A decent economy, positive earnings growth and pro-business moves by the Trump administration should keep stocks moving higher.”

Most analysts are predicting that the U.S. stock market will rise about 5 percent in 2017. However, one analyst from Merrill Lynch foresees a rise of up to 20 percent. Big gains in the market often occur in the first year of a new presidency, so this optimism could become a reality if the earnings recession in the S&P 500 continues to recede. Two ETFs that could be wise bets are the Guggenheim S&P 500 Equal Weight ETF and the Oppenheimer Small Cap Revenue ETF.
