Fed Chair Powell says 'further gradual' rate hikes best promote goals

Fed Chairman Jerome Powell says in a statement at the Economic Club of Chicago, "Wage growth has also remained moderate, though it has picked up compared with its pace in the early part of this recovery. Weak productivity growth is an important reason why we have not seen larger wage gains in recent years. At the same time, the absence of a sharper acceleration in wages suggests that the labor market is not excessively tight. I will be looking for an additional pickup in wage growth as the labor market strengthens further....Over the next few years, we will continue to aim for 2 percent inflation and for a sustained economic expansion with a strong labor market. As I mentioned, my FOMC colleagues and I believe that, as long as the economy continues broadly on its current path, further gradual increases in the federal funds rate will best promote these goals. It remains the case that raising rates too slowly would make it necessary for monetary policy to tighten abruptly down the road, which could jeopardize the economic expansion. But raising rates too quickly would increase the risk that inflation would remain persistently below our 2 percent objective. Our path of gradual rate increases is intended to balance these two risks." Reference Link

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.

Oppenheimer initiates S&P 500 price target of $3,000 in 2018 on outlook
Oppenheimer has initiated an S&P 500 price target of $3,000 in 2018 as it believes the fundamentals - both economic growth and corporate earnings - will likely improve further in 2018. Its price target and earnings estimate do not include any assumptions about what tax reform might ultimately look like.

Utilities view lowered to Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley equity strategist Michael Wilson said he thinks many of the risks facing the market have now been priced in and he sees value in the S&P, which is currently at the low end of his target near-term range ahead of what will likely be a strong Q1 earnings season. However, he is moving the Utilities sector to Equal Weight from Overweight, stating that this is not a sell call for those who recently bought the stocks but that a tactical overweight after recent relative outperformance no longer makes sense.

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.
