GOLDMAN: Here Are The 32 Best Stocks For 2015

A lot of banks are betting on a European stock boom in 2015.

And even Goldman Sachs, which is a little more pessimistic than some other investment banks, is betting on a significant climb for European equities.

They’re expecting the Eurostoxx 600 to hit 440 in 2018, according to their 2015 European outlook, out Thursday. That’s about a 30% boost from where it’s currently sitting, and would push the index to record levels.

By the end of next year, it should be up to 365.

Here’s a snapshot of what they’re forecasting:

GS also named their top stocks: 32 firms with an expected double and triple-digit returns. Here they are, along with the returns Goldman expects if they reach their target prices.
