Happy New Year to you all! We want to thank everyone who took the time to complete the poll last week which outlined your predictions in 2024.  Below are the results from our latest survey.

S&P Price Target Predictions

Although the most optimistic forecasts align with those of the most bullish Wall Street analysts, the more conservative predictions remain quite subdued. On average, clients anticipate positive returns in 2024 which is a sentiment shift from where things were a year ago.

Price of Bitcoin by Yearend

Admittedly, the poll exhibits a broad range, making the consensus of $40,000 – $100,000 a reasonably secure prediction. There are, however, a few Bitcoin enthusiasts who anticipate it surpassing $100,000 this year, especially if a spot ETF receives approval, potentially gaining momentum.

Best Performing Stock

The predictions spanned a wide range, featuring numerous Mega Cap tech stocks. Among the most interesting forecasts, one name stands out:

Safety Shot (SHOT), a beverage manufacturer specializing in a product designed to lower blood alcohol content. This company has captured media attention by addressing the age-old issue of the notorious hangover.  We appreciate the creativity here!
