Could This Apparently Simple Number Make History?

New York, NY, March 30h, 2022 (TopGun Press)

A proven predictor of market demand over 12 years, Brendan Wood’s Shareholder Conviction Index foretells changes in global portfolio requirements for equity exposure.

The capital markets conviction poll, which speaks for +$55 trillion big cap equity holdings, accurately predicted bull markets over the last decade. It consistently anticipated the high demand side of the investment industry, including during the COVID influence at its worst. Cautioned by the fact that the poll had yet to demonstrate its effectiveness at anticipating an equity downturn, we patiently observed the equity demand number drop from +85% to +58% between 3Q 2021 and the beginning of 1Q 2022. Stock prices dropped accordingly. In mid March, investors’  intentions signaled a modest rallying increase in equity exposure.

Given the predictive accuracy of this metric in multiple market conditions, its relevance to investment outlook cannot be ruled out. It may indeed make history.
