Mixed Opinions on Whether Stocks Are Excessively Overvalued

Posted on July 24, 2014 | AAII Survey

This week’s AAII Sentiment special question asked AAII members what sectors or segments they think are excessively overvalued right now. Responses were very mixed. Slightly less than a quarter of all respondents (24%) said either no segment is excessively overvalued or that the overall market is fairly valued right now. About 13% view social media and Internet companies as being excessively overvalued. Technology was named by 12%. Financials and technology were each listed by 9% of respondents. (Some respondents named more than one sector or industry group.)
