Elaine Garzarelli Bullish - 1300 S&P500 Target
Elaine Garzarelli, President, Garzarelli Capital was the Friday Market Monitor guest on "Nightly Business Report."
Elaine was quite bullish with an S&P500 target of 1300 based on 2011 earnings. Below are excerpts from her interview with PBS host Tom Hudson.
HUDSON: In February, you were saying the winter swoon was over and we did see prices climb through April and since then we`ve seen some volatility. What makes you think that higher stock prices are coming?
"GARZARELLI: Well, we`ve been in a trading range for five or six months. Usually after the initial surge in a new bull market -- the market went up 70 percent for the S&P 500 after a recession -- the usual case is that the stock market goes into a trading range for six to 12 months. So that is normal. And every time that happens, there is talk about double dips. And I don`t see a double dip, therefore I think we`re going to come out of this trading range, which has been 1050 to 1150 for five or six months.
HUDSON: OK. So how high and how fast do you think this rally could come?
GARZARELLI: Well, my indicators have gone up from 67 percent to 82 percent which is quite bullish. The 100 percent is the maximum, so 82 percent is fairly good. Thirty percent would be a new bear market. I have earnings for 2011 at 86. The consensus now is at 95. So I`m way below the consensus and with the P/E normal of about 15, that gets us to 1300 on the S&P 500. What`s that, 15 percent?"
HUDSON: A very bullish move, yeah.
GARZARELLI: That is only based on `11, not based on 2012 earnings.
HUDSON: Now you were here back in February as I mentioned and at the time, you were looking for dividend plays, including a couple of high-yield junk bond ETFs, which are up about 2 percent and that does not include any dividends. Do you still like this area?
GARZARELLI: Absolutely. I love junk bonds.
Garzarelli recommended the Industrial Select Sector SPDR XLI, the Home builder SPDR XHB and the Technology Select Sector SPDR XLK.
HUDSON: Would you rather buy the XHB than a new home?
HUDSON: OK, any disclosures for these funds?
GARZARELLI: I own everything I`ve mentioned tonight in my sector analysis fund.
YTD does not include dividends.
