Wall Street Says Industries Rallying Most are Ones Going Nowhere

  • Financial, industrial stocks nearest 12-month target prices
  • Profit growth in 2016 was among the worst in the S&P 500

Stock-pickers are excited about their opportunities under a Donald Trump presidency. But just a week after the U.S. election, their top choices may be stalling out.

Wall Street analysts say financial and industrial groups, the two parts of the stock market that have rallied the most since the vote, are running out of steam. The average financial stock is at or above analysts’ 12-month target price, and the average industrial company is just 2.4 percent below it, implying the least amount of upside since 2009.
