This week’s Sentiment Survey special question asked AAII members for their opinion of the current pace of economic growth. More than one out of four respondents (26%) described growth as slow or below average. An additional 14% described growth as sluggish and/or poor. About 15% believe the economy is getting stronger or will gain upward momentum under the new administration. Expectations for stronger growth was also shared among many of the 9% of respondents who say growth is moderate. Just 7% of respondents said the economy is growing at a good pace.

Here is a sampling of the responses:

  • “It will accelerate in the first and second quarter because of the new policies of the new administration.”
  • “Slow, but steady.”
  • “Sluggish globally, and not much better in the U.S.”
  • “For now, the data suggests moderate economic growth will continue.”
  • “Good, and will pick up this year.”
  • “Needs to be higher.”
