The Best Investments to Hold in 2016

As usual, none of Wall Street's so-called "top strategists" in a recent Barron's survey are calling for stocks to decline in 2016. All of them are calling for the bull market to continue next year.

Their 2016 S&P 500 forecasts varied from a groupthink low of 2,100 (Goldman Sachs' David Kostin) to a groupthink high of 2,500 (Federated Investors' Stephen Auth). Most of the rest were crowded around 2,200.

Chipotle Stock Price Will Continue to Plummet

The Chipotle stock price is slightly rallying after patrons of Chipotle have reportedly contracted a new stand of E. coli from the restaurant.

The CMG stock price may be slightly up on the day, but it's down 32.13% over the last three months.

Some investors may view this as a cheap entry point, but here's why the Chipotle stock price could plummet even further heading into 2016...

What's Next for the Nike Stock Price in 2016

The Nike stock price opened around $133 today (Wednesday) following the company's 2-for-1 stock split. A 2-for-1 stock split halves the price of shares, which is why the Nike stock price looks so much lower today.

The Nike stock price jumped nearly 3% after hours Tuesday and was flirting with an all-time high $135.30 following solid fiscal Q2 2016 results.
