18:21 EDTNFLX, GE, GLW, AAPL, GRPN, LNKD, AMZN, MSFT, FB, CRM, F, BACAmerica's portfolio managers see more gains for stocks, Barron's reports
Barron's conducted his Spring 2012 Big Money poll. America's money managers were cautiously optimistic about the stock market's prospects in the year ahead. The breakdown of the professional money managers investment outlook through June 2013 was: 4% very bullish, 51% bullish, 31% neutral, 12% bearish and 2% very bearish. That is up modestly from last fall's survey, when 52% of managers were bullish, and down modestly from the spring 2011 poll, when 59% of Big Money pros were bulls. The group expects the DJIA to rise by 6% through year end, to 13,756, and add another 3% thereafter, to arrive at 14,183 by June 2013. In round numbers that's a gain of 10% from Friday's close of 13,029.26. Forty-six percent of Big Money managers say the market is undervalued today, compared with 61% last fall. Another 41% think stocks are fairly valued, vs. 26% who felt that way in October. Among industry sectors, institutional investors are most bullish on the prospects for financials and technology shares, and most bearish on utilities and basic-materials stocks. Banks also will benefit as the economy strengthens and credit quality improves. But a better economy could be a bane for utility shares. Predictions for S&P 500 profit growth for 2012: 9.4%; for 2013: 7.6%. Predictions for oil in 2012: $103.79; for 2013: $103.86. Predictions for gold in 2012 $1,637; for 2013: $1,646. Favorite stocks of those polled for the next six to 12 months: Apple (AAPL), Bank of America (BAC), Microsoft (MSFT), Corning Glass (GLW), Ford (F), General Electric (GE), Salesforce.com (CRM). Stocks considered overvalued by respondants: Apple, Amazon.com (AMZN), Salesforce.com, LinkedIn, Netflix (NFLX), Facebook (FB)- based on the expected IPO, Bank of America, Groupon (GRPN).

The company will now pay for the music it streams during free trials, though it would pay less for each stream than it will when a user has taken a full subscription. Reference Link
