Credit Suisse is out with its Y 2020 outlook efforts, calling for earnings per share to improve and for price-to-earnings ratios to expand. The firm is initiating its 2020 S&P 500 price target of 3,425, which represents 9.8% upside from current marks and is based on an per-share earnings of $164.50 in 2019 (reduced from $166.50) and $173 per share in 2020 (reduced from $176) and imply earnings per share growth of 5.2% next year (from just 1% in 2019). The firm projects that the forward multiple will expand to 18.9 times by year-end 2020 from 18.1 times currently. Several assumptions are key to its 2020 outlook:

1) revenues to advance in-line with nominal GDP;
2) margin headwinds to be substantially less onerous;
3) buybacks to remain abundant;
4) reversal of decelerating economics to support multiple expansion.
