This week’s special question asked AAII members how, if at all, they have recently adjusted their stock investing strategy. Slightly less than one out of every four respondents (23%) said they have not made any recent changes. Equal numbers of respondents (20%) said they have shifted more into large-cap or value stocks. About 13% of respondents said they have increased their cash allocations.
Here is a sampling of the responses;
- “I am looking at value more than growth-oriented stocks.”
- “I continue to invest with the same asset allocation plan, regardless of whether it is a bull or a bear market.”
- “I stopped buying because everything is overpriced.”
- “No significant alteration, although I have taken some profits and kept the proceeds in cash in lieu of the present elevated level of the market.”
