Optimism Gains the Upper Hand: But Pessimism won't concede defeat

U.S. Investors Have Mixed Feelings About the Market1

In our survey1, 65% believe the stock market will make gains in 2013. However, 69% plan to take some risk off the table in 2013. Some investors may have a hard time embracing a long-term investing strategy that includes equities.

Is it Time to Take Risk off the Table?

Most investors in the Franklin Templeton Investor Sentiment Survey are optimistic about stock market performance in 2013.1 And while some investors are uncertain about stocks, it's stocks that have done the best job over the long term of providing returns after inflation is taken into consideration.

Take stock of your long-term goals. The best way forward will depend on your goals, time frame, and other details that make you a unique investor. Set up an appointment to discuss any changes to your portfolio with your financial advisor.
