U.S. equities get upgraded to Overweight at Citigroup thanks to "the combination of strong EPS momentum and a very aggressive central bank." The S&P 500 will score a 12% gain by year's end, predicts Tobias Levkovich. The "most-favored" 20 global stocks includes these from the U.S.: AES, CSX, GS, GOOG, QCOM, SBUX, AES.

    "U.S. equities get upgraded to Overweight at Citigroup thanks to "the combination of strong EPS momentum and a very obsessive-compulsive Fed chairman." The S&P 500 will score a 12% gain by year's end, predicts Tobias Levkovich, who added, "Bernanke has plenty of air left to blow this bubble even bigger! The man has the lungs of a god!""

    CSX is undervalued. Most S&P is blown up by Ben and his zero interest rate. Where do you put your money. The bubble is ging to burst

    Predictions are for fools. Trade the trend and don't listen to Citigroup. Look at their stock. What a mess.

    Ok - another big bank gets on board with what our PAR Model has been indicating for several months - better late then never, I guess. http://www.parmodel.com

    Maybe. The performance seems to depend on the election, the actions or inactions of Congress. How can anyone know? Does C sell stocks?

    i haven't seen the actual report but the summary on MarketWatch says 12% by the end of NEXT year...not by year's end. Very different, if true

    Apparently plenty of conflicting price targets for the S&P within Citi. One analyst had his targets below GS' 1250.
