>> 2. Only 42% of respondents were net buyers of stocks over the past year. <<

Makes sense, given the sharp rally in the last year. Many people were net sellers of stocks simply because the rally made their asset allocation too heavy in equities and they had to sell a fair bit of stock to restore their target allocations.

That's not the same thing as "fearing" to be invested in equities.
