'Tis the season for making predictions and Seeking Alpha authors have gotten in the spirit. Below we include a few of our favorite 2018 outlooks that span a few different sectors.
VanEck sees prospects of growth in emerging markets heading into the new year.
The emerging markets growth momentum has improved markedly in the past year and a half, recouping most of the losses it suffered after the taper tantrum. And the scope of growth actually broadened beyond the usual suspects such as Russia and Brazil. We also see several tailwinds, many of them cyclical, that we think should support young growth in the coming months.
GaveKal CEO Louis Gave joined Financial Sense this week to discuss the myriad bubbles in the markets and how they will likely head back down to reality in 2018.
We are in a bull market in everything and this is the first time in my career that everything is going up at once. I think history would show that this usually doesn't last forever and so we should probably expect in 2018 at least some of these asset classes to start feeling a little heavier.
Bitcoin going from $1000 to $10,000 in the space of nine months - that's obviously bubble-like behavior. If you look at the debt market, you've got high yield in Europe that is now yielding less than US Treasuries.
The first place to crack will be the bond market of the coming year… Once you start to see spreads widen, bond yields start to go up, it'll probably be the sign to take chips off the table.
TD Wealth shared their outlook on commodities:
Commodities are poised to lock in a solid performance this year and they're on an upward trajectory in 2018. Bart Melek, Global Head of Commodity Strategy, TD Securities, shares his 2018 commodities outlook and reveals which commodities he thinks could perform best.
We end with Mott Capital Management's 3 predictions for 2018: Tesla ( TSLA ) will hit $100 billion market cap. U.S. GDP will grow by 4%. S&P 500 will cross 3,000.
