Predictions for U.S. stock market in 2007
 
What will be the total return of the U.S. stock market during 2007?

The total return for the U.S. market in 2007 will be measured by the performance of Vanguard's Total Stock Market Index Fund - Admiral Shares, which trades as VTSAX.

Post your predictions with a single percentage number, such as "+30.48%", or "-30.48". Please do not explain or qualify your prediction, post only a single percentage number. If the number does not have a + or a - sign, it will be considered a positive number, and if the number does not have a % sign, it will nevertheless be interpreted as a percentage. The winner will get bragging rights.

My prediction is that it will go up by 15% in 2007.
At least, I hope it does! :-)

+ 8%


(even though we were told not to give our rationale, I am always a blabbermouth...

;D

so, mine is based on both what I think is reasonable based on my own past experience, and is what I have plugged in for planning purposes)
