Trimming Our S&P 500 Target, Getting More Intrigued With Small Caps

Published June 7, 2022 | 5 min listen

This week in the podcast, we’re updating our outlook on the broader US equity market. Three big things you need to know: First, we have trimmed our S&P 500 year-end 2022 price target to 4700 from 4860. This is a housekeeping move. We are continuing to bake in a slower economic growth backdrop in 2022-2023 as opposed to a recession. Second, we continue to be more intrigued with Growth over Value going forward as most of our indicators look better for Growth or are fading for Value. Third, we recommend removing underweights on Small Cap and moving back to neutral vs. Large Cap, as Small Cap looks intriguing or better on our positioning/sentiment, valuation, and earnings work. The better risk/reward for Small Cap is something that reinforces our view that equity markets generally can move higher through year end.
