The COVID-19 Investor Pulse Check Series

What is the impact of the crisis on investors’ expectations for the US economy, the US stock market, and business leaders?

BCG’s COVID-19 Investor Pulse Check series is intended to bring the voice of the investor to business leaders and board members. While we feature the most recent investor perspectives here, you can explore earlier editions below.

The latest edition—conducted September 18–19, 2020—finds that a majority of investors expect the S&P 500 to return to earnings growth by the end of Q2 2021. In addition, 70% of investors support reinstating dividends at some level for COVID-resilient companies by the end of Q1 2021. The respondents represent investment firms with more than $4 trillion in combined assets under management. They cover a broad spectrum of investing types and styles, and about 80% are portfolio managers and senior analysts directly responsible for making buy, sell, and hold decisions.
