Recipients of direct incentive payments totaling $ 380 billion can spend 10% of this on buying bitcoin and stocks. Such data is provided by Yahoo! Finance with reference to the results of a survey of the Japanese investment banking company Mizuho Securities.
Mizuho Managing Director Dan Dolev announced that they have interviewed about 235 individuals whose household income is less than $ 150,000. Of these, about 200 expect to receive third round payments in the coming days.
Nearly one in two in five recipients of checks said they would use some of the money they received to invest. At the same time, the majority of survey participants give preference to bitcoin over stocks.
“The survey results show that bitcoin accounts for about 60% of planned investments. We calculated that this could be an increase of 2-3% to the current Bitcoin capitalization of $ 1.1 trillion , ”writes Dolev.
The data collected also indicates that the preferred promotions among the recipients of incentive payments are Visa, MasterCard, PayPal and Square. Analysts at Goldman Sachs came to similar conclusions in their research.
“We expect households to be the largest source of demand for stocks this year. We raise our outlook for household stock demand from $ 100bn to $ 350bn reflecting faster economic growth and higher interest rates than previously anticipated, in addition to additional incentive payments to individuals and increased retail investor activity in early 2021 of the year, ” writes David Kostin, lead stock market strategist at Goldman Sachs.
According to CNN, about 90% of US households are eligible for benefits. Eligible citizens are entitled to checks for $ 1,400, and a couple with two children can expect to receive $ 5,600.
