Posted April 14, 2018 03:08:38 It’s time to get your new stock in the books, and the first few months of 2019 are shaping up to be one of the most challenging periods of the year.
While some companies have already posted record quarterly earnings, the pace of new filings and acquisitions will only continue to increase.
Here’s a rundown of the key events to watch in 2019:The stock market is expected to open higher than expected, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average expected to rise about 40 points this year, according to Bloomberg data.
That would make the Dow the biggest one-day gainer in the past 10 years, and would be the biggest gain since January 2017.
The stockmarket is expected at the end of this month to hit the high $2,500s, according the data.
Investors may not be getting as excited as they might be about 2019, as a lot of new stocks and ETFs will open in the coming months.
Here’s how to get started.
A growing number of U.S. companies are planning to move up in the next 12 months, according a Reuters survey of more than 2,000 companies.
That includes some of the biggest names in tech and other industries.
A slew of U and U.K. tech stocks, including Google, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, Facebook and LinkedIn, will likely hit new record highs over the next year.
The U.N. agency’s climate change research body has also projected that the number of carbon-intensive power plants will double by 2035.
The U.W. Chamber of Commerce, which represents about 3 million businesses and represents more than 3 million American workers, said that its members are also optimistic about the outlook for 2019.
“While we are skeptical of the economic impact of the Paris Agreement, we expect that the U. States will have an even stronger start to 2019,” said David Toth, president and CEO of the chamber.
