Over half of Americans view stocks as risky and more than four in 10 plan to adopt a more conservative portfolio allocation, new research reveals.

Franklin Templeton, San Mateo, Calif., published this finding in its 2012 Franklin Templeton Global Investor Sentiment Survey, which polled more than 20,000 individuals in 19 countries, representing 70% of the world's GDP. Designed in partnership with Duke University psychology and behavioral economics professor Dan Ariely, the survey examines factors influencing investors' outlooks and behavior.
