A. because of the economy’s continued strength, analysts have been predicting for weeks that the target will
- present perfect tense is correct.

B. with the economy’s strength continuing, analysts predicted for weeks that the target
- predicted is in the wrong tense, 'economy's strenght continuing' is awkward

C. because the economy continues strong, analysts predicted for weeks that the target would
- 'continues strong' is awkward

D. due to the economy’s continued strength, analysts have been predicting for weeks that the target
- 'target be raised' is awkward

E. due to the fact of the economy’s continued strength, analysts predicted for weeks that the target will
- 'to the fact' is redundant

A it is.
