Abstract This paper examines differences among investors who are relatively optimistic/pessimistic regarding the performance of the stock market in terms of portfolio composition and trading activity. Findings indicate that investors more pessimistic regarding the stock market are likely to: (1) channel their funds into leveraged and tax advantageous investments, and (2) trade less frequently on the stock market.
