The Dow Jones Industrial Average could very well rise another 10 percent by year-end, Wharton School of Business finance professor Jeremy Siegel said Monday.
Siegel reiterated his call that the index would finish the year between 16,000 and 17,000. "It can happen. That's about a 10 percent increase from now, and certainly it's [a] possibility."
He told CNBC's "Fast Money" that he saw his bullish call as a cakewalk.

"Seventeen is going to be an easy target next year to reach and surpass, in my opinion," Siegel said. "I don't know if we're going to quite get there by Dec. 31, but near."
A softening in small- and mid-cap stocks doesn't concern him, he said.
"The breadth of the market has been very, very strong," Siegel said. "Yes, there's a little setback in the Russell, and I do look at that as a short-run indicator—but when I take a look at stable interest rates, 2.50 to 2.60, oil down … which I think is very, very bullish for the stock market.
