22% Say Stock Market Will Be Stronger In A Year

Friday, August 02, 2013

Despite big gains made in the stock market in July, few Americans believe the market will be higher in the near future.  A plurality also still thinks housing prices will take more than three years to recover.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only 22% of American Adults think the stock market will be higher than it is today a year from now.  Just as many (23%) disagree and believe the market will be lower. Thirty-eight percent (38%) think it will be about the same.  Seventeen percent (17%) are not sure.  (To see survey question wording, click here.)
