The S&P 500 could end the year at 5,500, says InfraCap’s Jay Hatfield

The S&P 500 notched a record high this week, closing above the key 5,000 mark on Friday afternoon. But Infrastructure Capital Advisors’ Jay Hatfield believes that the index still has room to go in 2024.

Hatfield’s year-end target for the broader index is 5,500, corresponding to a potential 9% rise. In the near term, however, he believes that the market will remain largely stagnant while investors wait for the Federal Reserve to begin cutting rates.

“I don’t think we’re just going to infinitely and quickly go to 5,500,” he told CNBC. “Our guess is that we stall out somewhere around 5,000 or 5,100 until we have greater clarity on both a Fed and ECB rate cut most likely in June, but possibly in May,” he told CNBC.
