Investors Favor U.S., Japanese Stocks, Survey Says

Investors are the most bullish on global equities in more than two years, as monetary stimulus from central banks prompted demand for U.S. and Japanese stocks, a Bank of America Corp. survey showed.

A net 57 percent of global money managers, who together oversee about $578 billion, said they are overweight on equities this month, the highest reading since early 2011. That is up from 51 percent in February. Holdings in U.S. stocks are at their highest level in eight months, while allocations to Japanese equities jumped to the highest since 2007.
