BlackRock’s (BLK) vice chairman Bob Doll thinks that the cyclical bull market has further to go.
Sharing his market outlook with reporters on Wednesday, he said he sees the S&P 500 stock index printing 1,250 by year-end.
Doll also said he is not concerned about an increase in inflationary pressures given overcapacity in all sectors of the economy, and that he expects the U.S. economy to grow by a little more than 3% in 2010. Doll sees the growth coming in large part from the massive government stimulus program, while another major bump would come from inventory restocking.
Reuters: “Inventories alone, which got to depression levels, need to be replenished. That will add at least a percentage point to GDP here,” he said.
Doll reiterated his expectation that equities will outperform U.S. Treasuries.
