Jeremy Siegel makes his annual predictions and see stocks with an 8% gain.....my prediction is that stocks will be up, down, or about the same as they started!
Perhaps you think my prediction is weak or comical - it is neither. Predicting the markets, while fun and time consuming is a waste of time as no one can do it correctly on a consistent basis.
I have a fundamental belief that stocks will go up over time and that it is much better to be in them than out of them, other than that - I stay away from predictions.
Having said that, take a gander at Siegel's outlook - it is interesting.
