This week’s Sentiment Survey special question asked AAII members how, if at all, they have recently adjusted their stock investing strategy. More than one-third of respondents (35%) said they are focusing on large-cap, income producing and/or value-oriented stocks. Many of these respondents specifically said that they are primarily seeking dividend-paying stocks. About 14% of respondents said that they have become more conservative, particularly by increasing their cash allocations. More than 6% of those responding are buying small-cap stocks. Nearly 30% of respondents said that they have not made any changes, however.
Here is a sampling of the responses:
- “Focusing on large-cap, undervalued stocks for the next six months.”
- “Primarily large-cap stocks for the dividends.”
- “I remain fully invested and except for possibly minor rebalancing, I won’t be doing anything.”
- “Holding more cash for good opportunities.”
- “Gone to cash for the time being.”
