LONDON (Reuters) – U.S. technology and other high-growth stocks have been the “crowded” trade, and for three months in a row, Bank of America’s fund manager survey showed on Tuesday, as a result, the market bullishness, after the US, China’s pre-trade deal.
The allocation of shares, net 32% overweight in January, for a net 12% underweight in August 2019 as investors took comfort from the positive trade relations between the world’s top two economies, as well as the fear of a recession are fading away.
The school said that the reversal of the position in the stocks was the largest since 2011, but it was still well below the 50% obesity levels seen during the previous market “tops”.
It added that in January, positioning, showed that investors were “bullish”, but not “euphoric”.
The respondents in the survey forecast the S&P 500 .(“AEX”) index, which reached 3,400 in the third quarter of the year.
