Barrons 2013 Outlook – No Negative Forecasts….

Barrons came out with their 2013 Outlook today and I was not surprised to see that all of the forecasts are positive.  There isn’t a single forecaster who expected the S&P 500 to fall this year.  There is only one forecaster who expects the 10 year bond yield to fall from its current level of 1.7% and he only sees a 10 bps decline to 1.6%.  Here’s the round-up:

Stephen Auth, Federated Investors

S&P Year-end Target: 1660
