Credit Suisse’s Garthwaite Sees S&P Ending Year at 1,180

Forecasts from Andrew Garthwaite, global equity strategist at Credit Suisse Group AG (CSGN), will be included in Bloomberg’s weekly survey of Standard & Poor’s 500 Index projections.

Doug Cliggott, the Boston-based U.S. equity strategist, had been included in the survey since September 2010. His year-end forecast for the S&P 500 of 1,100 was the lowest among 12 strategists in the Bloomberg poll. Garthwaite, based in London, projects the measure will end this year at 1,180 and next year at 1,260. It closed at 1,195.54 today. The average estimate in the survey is 1,278.
