I am going with 1297 which is the 211-th prime with 211 being the 47-th prime with 47 being the 15-th prime which isn't prime but is the best I could do and still come up with a reasonable guess.

1365.6

After much research, spreadsheet analysis, wearing several pencils to nubs, and consultations with "experts", my estimate of the S&P 500 at year end 2011 is 1365.6.

Just.
