Expect the stock market rally to continue through the New Year, with the index climbing to the 2,200 level in 2015, Wall Street strategist Tobias Levkovich told CNBC on Friday.
Strong corporate earnings coupled with decent revenue growth will lift stocks some 7 to 9 percent in 2015, Levkovich, chief equity strategist at Citigroup, said on "Squawk on the Street. "
