Last week we highlighted the various S&P 500 price targets of Wall Street strategists to get a sense as to where they thought the market was headed. Today, we look at the sentiment of individual analysts by using their price targets for each of the 30 stocks in the Dow. As shown below, based on the average analyst price target, the Dow is expected to rise by 16% from current levels. On the positive side, analysts are most bullish on AIG, MRK, HPQ, and MSFT. For each of these names, they are expecting gains of about 30%. While none of the Dow thirty stocks are expected to decline, the ones expected to show the smallest gains are JPM, WMT, HD, and C. While analyst price targets should normally be taken with a grain of salt, it often helps to know what others are expecting.
