You Gotta Buy Any Dip: FOMO Calls Are Back, But Not Everyone Is Excited
You gotta buy the dip. That's the message from Canaccord's Tony Dwyer, who lifted his 12- to 18-month price target on the S&P to 3,300, and upped his EPS estimate for next year to $165 from $150.

EPS growth will have to be “earned” via rev growth and cost control. I am not so sanguine.
