We are halfway through the first quarter of 2022 and so far it’s been a challenging period for many investors.

Year-to-date, the S&P/TSX Composite Index is down slightly, approximately 1 per cent, however, seven of the 11 sectors have realized negative price returns ranging from minus 3 per cent to a hefty loss of 37 per cent for the technology sector. The four sectors with gains are energy, materials, communication services and financials.

Despite the market volatility and negative returns for many stocks, analysts remain bullish. Of the 240 stocks in the S&P/TSX Composite Index, only four securities are forecast by the Street to deliver negative price returns over the next year (New Gold Inc., Labrador Iron Ore Royalty Corp., Turquoise Hill Resources Ltd., and Artis REIT). Meanwhile, 193 stocks, or 80 per cent, are anticipated to realize positive double-digit price returns.

Below is a list of analysts’ target prices, recommendations, and forecast returns for all securities in the S&P/TSX Composite Index grouped by sector and ranked according to their expected price returns, excluding dividend and distribution income. The posted target price for each security is an average of all available target prices from analysts. A target price typically reflect an expected share or unit price 12 months from now based on an analyst’s financial modelling, such as a discounted cash flow or sum-of-the-parts model. All data is as of the close on Feb. 18.
