More than five years after the financial crisis, the average American is still wary of the stock market, according to a survey released today, CNNMoney reported. The survey of more than 1,000 households by Bankrate.com showed that 73 percent are "not more inclined to invest in stocks." It was the third year in a row that individual investors expressed a negative view of the stock market. After bottoming in 2009, stocks have been in a bull market, with the S&P 500 more than doubling in value.
