Individual investors were last this ‘neutral’ on stocks eight months ago, AAII says

The percentage of individual investors who are neutral — neither bullish nor bearish — about the outlook for stock prices over the coming six months widened to 35.4% from 29% in the latest survey from the American Association of Individual Investors, the highest such reading since last September and above the historical average of 31.5%.

Bullishness rose to 40.8% from 38.5%, above the historical average of 37.5% for the 26th time in 27 weeks.

Bearish sentiment slumped to 23.8% of those polled, down from 32.5% last week and the historical average of 31%. It was the first time in four weeks that pessimism was below its historical average.

Contrarians who like to bet against the crowd say that rising bullishness means investors have less cash to put to work in the market and have less buying in front of them than behind them. Rising bearishness means the reverse — there’s more money to invest and more selling has been done.
