Where Might 2024 Investors Harvest Returns?

Four times a year, Zacks does a survey of Chief Investment Officers (CIOs). CIOs get asked 14 questions. All questions tap into their 12-month look-ahead views: On numerous stock ETFs, broad bond classes, and key macro fundamentals. Our Chief Equity Strategist and Economist, John Blank, is here now to discuss the survey findings.

1. CIOs manage money. They are conservative, and apply long-term investing tactics. So what do they see over the next 12 months regarding the market?

2. Which S&P500 sectors do they favor?

3. What about global markets?

4. As far as the economy goes, are they concerned about slow U.S. real GDP growth morphing into a deep U.S. recession?

5. They also look for core CPI to go lower correct?

6. What do they see in other core macro fundamentals?

7. What are other major themes they responded with?

8. What are you looking for in our economy in the second half here?

9. What does recent central bank action tell you about the health of the global economy?

10. There are two large Building Products-Materials stocks in our latest Zacks #1 Rank list to look into…and one large Medical Products Company. They include Zimmer Biomet ZBH, Vulcan Materials VMC and Martin Marietta Materials MLM.

Zacks Names "Single Best Pick to Double"

From thousands of stocks, 5 Zacks experts each have chosen their favorite to skyrocket +100% or more in months to come. From those 5, Director of Research Sheraz Mian hand-picks one to have the most explosive upside of all.

It’s a little-known chemical company that’s up 65% over last year, yet still dirt cheap. With unrelenting demand, soaring 2022 earnings estimates, and $1.5 billion for repurchasing shares, retail investors could jump in at any time.

This company could rival or surpass other recent Zacks’ Stocks Set to Double like Boston Beer Company which shot up +143.0% in little more than 9 months and NVIDIA which boomed +175.9% in one year.
