Goldman Sachs thinks this selloff is “overdone” and that a rally is coming. The bank thinks the current market presents a good buying opportunity and forecasts the market to rise 7% before the end of the year. According to the bank “The recent sell-off has priced too sharp of a near-term growth slowdown. We expect continued economic and earnings growth will support a rebound in the S&P 500”. To play the rebound, the bank says to look at stocks in its “high quality” basket. These include: Mastercard, Cognizant Technology Solutions, Alphabet, Accenture, Ansys, C.H. Robinson Worldwide, Edwards Lifesciences, International Flavors & Fragrances, and Ross Stores.
FINSUM: That is a very wide selection of choices, but more interesting to us is Goldman’s view on a recovery. We agree that this selloff seems to be an overreaction relative to the fundamentals.
