Here's Oppenheimer's List Of The 29 Best Stocks For 2017

The year 2016 is into its last leg and has turned out to be exemplary for the markets. Accommodative monetary policy, a vibrant economy, a fairly decent showing by commodities and the surprise election of Donald Trump, who is perceived as business friendly, have all worked in unison to send the markets into uncharted territory.

The Dow Industrial is closing in on the 20,000 level, having gained nearly 14 percent in the year-to-date period. The S&P 500 Index is also making records every other session, with the index ending last Tuesday's session at a new closing record of 2,271.72.

Emulating such a superlative performance next year might be pretty tough. Even as the indexes, stocks and markets in general are up against a tougher comparison, Oppenheimer has released its 29 best ideas for 2017. For those looking to rebalance their portfolios, this list could provide some direction.
