5 Replies to “AAII Survey: Lack of Tax Reform Will Have Negative Impact on Stock Market”

  1. Why would AAII so negatively present the question of potential success on tax reform, which has such a positive values to our economy, to the capitalist system and a free market political environment? Is the mindset at AAII so negative that we members fail to appreciate the advantages that the proposals for tax-reform are a big step toward positive change?

     
    1. The operative word is potential. There is no guarantee that tax reform will become law. And if it doesn’t we asked how our readers how they think that would impact the stock market. Most analysts and market watchers feel that the rise in the market since Election Day is fueled by expectations of tax reform and deregulation. If those expectations aren’t met, there will be an adjustment in the stock market, irrespective of your politics.

       
  2. I am surprised and disappointed that AAII would present the very positive progress that the tax reform is making in such a negative published manner!

  3. I hope AAII has people talking to the right legislators and lobby groups to defeat the provision that would not allow individuals to designate what lots to sell. If that passes we will not be able to choose lots to intentionally “harvest” losses. The pros and mutual funds have already carved out an exemption for themselves. Please AAII, work hard on this one. We as individuals must write our legislators too.
