Our 2018 earnings forecast for S&P 500 Index companies is $152.50. Assuming a trailing 12-month price to-earnings (PE) ratio of 19–20, we believe the S&P 500 would be fairly valued in the range of 2950–3000 by year end 2018.

SECURITY

Security and account protection with LPL Financial

Securing and servicing your investment needs.

The LPL Financial SIPC membership provides account protection up to a maximum of $500,000 per customer, of which $250,000 may be claimed for cash. For an explanatory brochure, visit www.sipc.org. Moreover, through London Insurers, LPL Financial accounts have additional securities protection to cover the net equity of customer accounts up to an overall aggregate firm limit of $575 million subject to conditions and limitations. The account protection applies when an SIPC member firm fails financially and is unable to meet obligations to securities clients, but it does not protect against losses from the rise and fall in the market value of investments. This extensive coverage reflects a strong commitment to servicing your investment needs.
