In doing so, most investors (77%) plan to use the “buy the dip” strategy.

Investors likewise expect stocks in these sectors to “outperform market expectations.”
“This sentiment reflects the global trends in Environmental, Social and Governance, with core investing themes focusing on net-zero emissions, inclusion, as well as data scarcity,” said Moomoo SG, who conducted the survey.

Meanwhile, more than half of investors (56%) also believe that the meme stocks-craze will no longer make a comeback in 2023.
