The results of the CAQ’s Sixth Annual Main Street Investor Survey suggest that confidence about domestic markets may have stabilized and perhaps even begun to rebound. In 2012, investors’ confidence in U.S. capital markets increased four percentage points, to 65 percent, after declining or remaining static every year since 2008. Investors’ ratings on two other key metrics—confidence in investing in U.S. companies and confidence in audited financial information—remained steady at 71 percent and 69 percent, respectively.
