Here’s how Goldman Sachs offers a 90% chance of being in the S&P 500 over the next decade

Whether or not the market’s discussion topped a day, the bears returned to their dens after Tuesday’s rally. Positive vaccine news could carry over to Wednesday’s session.

Looking a little further, Goldman Sachs is led by David Kosteen. He estimates that the S&P 500 SPX,
+ 1.34%
Will generate an average annual return of 6% over the next 10 years, including dividends.

Not bad, is it? Certainly, any long-term forecast is subject to considerable uncertainty, and returns between 2% and 11% occupy a standard deviation around its mean estimate, Goldman strategists say. Goldman conducted a similar exercise in July 2012 and projected a return of 8% compared to the actual 13.6% gain, which was more than a standard deviation.

How did the Goldman team reach 6%? He looked at five factors – today’s absolute and relative valuations, equity allocation, dividend yield estimates and economic modeling. To make a long story too short, the cyclically adjusted price-to-earnings ratio is a high 26.5, but interest rates are incredibly low.

Perhaps the more notable insight is that the stock has a 90% probability of bonds since the 10-year Treasury TMUBMUSD10Y.
Yield is 0.63%.

Goldman highlighted five risks to Outlook. There is a distortion, which puts both sales and earnings at risk. Another tax is, with the plan of current presidential front-runner Joe Biden, a 12% drop on the S&P 500 earnings, if applicable. Labor costs, demographics and index structure – the S&P 500 has averaged 35% turnover per decade since 1980 – are also risks.
