The latest narrative coming from the market predictors is that lower oil price will produce a recession since people will have more money in their pockets to spend /save.  This is just a philosophic disagreement I have with the trend of the article.  However, I agree that a large double digit return for the year would be more unexpected than expected.  Put me down for a 9% S&P return for 2015, which places me at the middle of the pack.  I just see some unexpected event occurring that we have not predicted which will bring the overall market lower by the end of the year.  Read the article to gain the insights and rational of each investment group.  Let see where you stand with your predictions at year end.
