Your 2021 S&P Prediction.

Haven't seen one of these.

We started the year at 3756. Where do you predict we will end at?
Spin the wheel, make your guesses.

I'm going with 3568 or down 5% after weeks of studying the chicken entrails I've left scattered in the backyard. I'm also guessing with a much higher degree of confidence that my neighbors will be asking me to move by the summer.

@GravitySucks thanks for the thread. Why 5% down?

Absolutely no reason.
It's a SWAG without even the S

What's your prognostication?

Sure. Send me the right answer. If you are correct, I will send you 10% of my earnings

Of course, if you are wrong, you can send me 10% of my losses.

Deal?

@GravitySucks Higher than today. The economy is good and interest rates are low for the time being.

+11 or 12% in the S&P. I'm just looking for +9% total portfolio return because that will take me over a pleasing very round total portfolio number after expenses.
