Wells Fargo press release -------- The Wells Fargo/Gallup Investor and Retirement Optimism Index held steady in the fourth quarter at +140, statistically unchanged from +138 in the third quarter. The index is near its September 2000 high of +147. Three-quarters of non-retired investors in the survey have a 401(k) plan, and more than half – 57 percent – say the most valued feature of their plan is the “match contribution from their employer.” The next most valued feature is the tax deferral on the money they contribute, which was noted by 33 percent. Forty-six percent say they would “save less” or “stop saving” in their 401(k) if the tax deferred status of their plan was taken away, whereas 42 percent say they would “save the same amount.” The survey was conducted by telephone with 1,015 U.S. investors Nov. 1–5, 2017, 67 percent of whom are non-retired and 33 percent of whom are retired.
