Investor Pessimism Gains Ground as Overvalued Markets Still Remain Under Watch

New York, NY – The results of the latest American Association of Individual Investors are out, and the general mood among retail investment isn’t all upbeat. The results don’t surprise given that the stocks are perceived as overvalued.

As per the AAII survey, pessimism is again becoming prominent, though it is still not the highest that has been seen this year. The figures for the next six months reveal that bullish mood is down to around 28 percent, quite below the historical average of 38.5 percent. Neutral expectations haven’t changed much, staying at around 33 percent. The pessimistic outlook has however grown to around 38 percent.

“The AAII results further lend basis to the general perception of the markets being overvalued. Investors are thus watchful and not willing to make bold moves,” said Strahan McNeil.

Apart from overvaluation, another factor that has sunk optimism further is the notion that growth in earnings may not be sustained in the near future. However, quite a substantial chunk of nearly 32 percent investors said they were not moved by profit figures.
