AAII Sentiment Survey Still Show Extreme Bearishness

The AAII Investor Sentiment Survey measures the percentage of individual investors who are bullish, bearish, and neutral on the stock market for the next six months; individuals are polled from the ranks of the AAII membership on a weekly basis. Only one vote per member is accepted in each weekly voting period.

Some how or rather this data makes me wonder if the survey is skewed because a few people are managing a larger portion of the money. they may be bullish while more are bearish.

Definitely not something to use to make a decision upon, considering the sentiments did reach a rather overly bearish proportion in 2008. Still its fascinating.

I think the take away is the market for the next 6 months. So its not like people are factoring a 10-20% correction and ending up higher.

People are thinking it will end up lower.
