‘Bearish’ Stock Forecasts Lowest in Six Months, Survey Says

February 15, 2012

Feb. 15 (Bloomberg) -- The following are results from Investors Intelligence’s analysis of investment newsletters for Feb. 8 through yesterday. The New Rochelle, New York-based firm determines the proportion of writers who are bullish and bearish on U.S. stocks, as well as the percentage who anticipate a correction, or 10 percent decline, in the market.

Technical analysts, who try to predict stock moves based on price and trading patterns, track investor sentiment as a contrarian indicator. They interpret greater optimism as bearish and increased pessimism as bullish.
