Investor Confidence Wavers in Q2, Says John Hancock

Reported by Irene Park

Investors feel slightly less confident about investing in mutual funds and bonds in Q2 but not significantly so, says a John Hancock Financial poll of investors.

According to the John Hancock Investors Sentiment Index released today, overall investor sentiment is down two points to +19 in the second quarter compared with +21 in the first quarter. But it is up a point from +18 in the year-prior quarter.

Most investors maintained their Q1 views on investing in mutual funds and bonds. Nonetheless, the percentage of investors who said it is a good idea to invest in balanced mutual funds have gone down to 52 percent from 54 percent. Similarly, 27 percent said Q2 was a good time to invest in bonds vs. 28 percent in Q1.
