Consumer discretionary sector downgraded to Underweight at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley equity strategist Michael Wilson said he expects the next phase of the "reflation trade" to coincide with outperformance for small caps, banks, and energy and he expects the consumer discretionary sector to underperform. The strategist, who downgraded the consumer discretionary sector to underweight, noted that on a median basis the relative performance of the sector tends to peak 42 months before a recession. While the low relative multiples in much of the sector reflect well understood structural pressures, there is room for multiples to fall further when the cycle turns, he tells investors.

Morgan Stanley sets S&P 500 'base case' price target of 2,700
Morgan Stanley U.S. Equity Strategist Michael Wilson set a 12-month "base case" price target of 2,700 for the S&P 500, stating that market technicals are in "very good shape" and institutional and retail data suggest U.S. equity positioning is not extreme. A cyclical upturn began a year ago as the global business cycle bottomed in Q1 of 2016 and President Trump's election then "turbocharged" that cycle, said Wilson.

S&P 500 price target raised to 2,400 from 2,300 at Goldman Sachs
Goldman analyst David Kostin raised his S&P 500 earnings estimate to $129 from $123 in 2017 and to $139 from $129 in 2018 to reflect strong Q1 results and higher expected growth in Financials and Info Tech. Kostin raised his year-end S&P 500 price target to 2,400 from 2,300 to reflect earnings growth of 9%, offset by a 4% contraction in the forward multiple.
