    Outlook 2018: The Bull Market's Next Act

    Donald Trump’s election as president in 2016 turned a bull with a midlife crisis into a high-powered charger, as investors cheered the Republicans’ pro-growth agenda and bid up anything that might benefit. The S&P 500 could gain about 7%, mirroring similar gains in corporate profits, according to the consensus forecast of 10 investment strategists at major U.S. investment banks and money-management firms surveyed by Barron’s each December. The outlook isn’t entirely rosy: Interest rates are headed higher, stocks are expensive, and a tax overhaul could still stall or fail.

    [$$] Big Firms, Big Payouts

    After cratering during the financial crisis a decade ago—dividends for companies in the Standard & Poor’s 500 index dropped 21% in 2008—double-digit increases were the norm from 2011 through 2015, thanks in no small part to low-cost borrowing.

Howard Silverblatt, senior index analyst at S&P Dow Jones Indices, expects S&P 500 companies to grow their payouts in the 6% to 8% range next year.

    Tax-loss selling to pressure 2017's losers in December

    Stocks that have been lackluster so far in 2017 are unlikely to see their fortunes reversed in the final month of the year, as investors engage in tax-harvesting practices before the new year. Investors often exercise tax-loss selling strategies, dumping stocks that have performed poorly in order to reduce or eliminate capital gains taxes, as the year draws to a close. "This is something we do every December, we take losses for clients who we’ve created gains for," said Jake Dollarhide, chief executive officer of Longbow Asset Management in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
