The 2013 Outlook and Predictions

$$ - Here are the 2013 stock market predictions:

Current levels on Jan 1st.

  • Dow: 13,104
  • SP500: 1,426
  • Nasdaq: 3,019
On to the Fox Business Network gurus! Since the shows were recorded prior to New Year's Eve, and there was one huge positive trading day on December 31st, most of their picks are up nicely so far! We'll have to be fair and use the closing price on the 29th for their total 2013 return, as that's when they made their picks, but I want to show the gains that were made on the last day of the year as I list the picks.

Bulls and Bears

Gary B. Smith: AAPL up to new highs

Apple currently trades at $532.17, after a big $22.58 move on Monday, after the Bulls and Bears show was broadcast over the weekend. I'm not giving the show credit for the Monday move, as the whole market was being moved by fiscal cliff kinds of things. The 52-week and all time high is $705.07. I like the pick. We'll get a good idea if this pick is going to work out in a few weeks when Apple reports!

Jonas Max Ferris: IRBT

iRobot Corporation is at $18.74, up $.15 on the Monday following the show. Interesting pick by Jonas.

Tobin Smith: RIMM

Research in motion was up 8-cents monday, closing out the year at $11.87. My thought is that this company is losing market share, and I don't see it recovering or gaining against Android or Apple. Or even Microsoft, for that matter.

Cavuto on Business

Charles Payne: TRN $35.15, CLF $35.58, EWJ $9.67

This year, Charles was the only stock picker on the program giving the above three picks. I typed in the closing prices for the stocks on the Friday before the show, but now on Jan 1st, TRN trades at $35.82, CLF trades at $38.57 after a big 8.4% move Monday, EWJ trades at $9.75.

Forbes on Fox

Morgan Brennan: BX

Blackstone Group closed Friday at $15.25 before the show was recorded, and was up 2.23% to $15.59 at the close on Monday, New Years Eve.

Bill Baldwin: GWW

W. W. Granger closed at $198.20 on Friday when the show was recorded, and popped $4.17 Monday to $202.37.

Elizabeth MacDonald: RBCGX

RBCGX closed the year at $57.74. It was up Monday by $1.15 or over 2%. Again, this is after Friday's show.

Cashin' In

These folks are all swinging for the fences. I don't know what to say about these picks!

Jonathan Hoenig: SMFG to double in 2013

Wayne Rogers: LXRX to triple in 2013

John Layfield: FB jumps 50% in 2013

Carol Roth: HLF up 200-300% in 2013
