(OPEN):
AMERICA'S RETAIL-INVESTORS ARE MORE CONFIDENT NOW IN THE NATION'S CAPITAL-MARKETS--AND ABOUT INVESTING IN U-S PUBLICLY-TRADED COMPANIES--THAN AT ANY TIME IN MORE THAN A DECADE.  AND, THOSE INVESTORS ARE KEEPING A CLOSE EYE ON TAX-REFORM EFFORTS, AND OTHER POLITICAL-ISSUES.  THAT'S ACCORDING TO THE "CENTER FOR AUDIT-QUALITY'S" JUST-RELEASED "11TH-ANNUAL 'MAIN-STREET INVESTOR' SURVEY"CINDY FORNELLI IS THE C-A-Q'S EXECUTIVE-DIRECTOR...

(FORNELLI):
"
OUR SURVEY HAS REVEALED THE SOLID TRUST THAT AMERICANS PLACE IN DOMESTIC CAPITAL-MARKETS--THROUGH A VARIETY OF MARKET-CONDITIONS, OVER THE YEARS.  THIS YEAR, 85-PERCENT OF INVESTORS EXPRESS CONFIDENCE IN THE CAPITAL-MARKETS--WHILE 83-PERCENT ARE CONFIDENT ABOUT INVESTING IN PUBLICLY-TRADED COMPANIES--BOTH OF WHICH ARE RECORD-HIGHS.  IN ADDITION, 78-PERCENT ARE CONFIDENT IN THE AUDITED FINANCIAL-INFORMATION THAT'S RELEASED BY THOSE COMPANIES.  OUR RESPONDENTS ALSO SAY THAT POLITICAL-ACTIONS TAKEN BY THE WHITE HOUSE OR CONGRESS--ALONG WITH CHANGES TO TAX-POLICY--ARE THE FACTORS MOST LIKELY TO AFFECT THEIR INVESTMENT-DECISIONS, OVER THE COMING YEAR.  THEY ALSO EXPRESS CONCERNS ABOUT THE RISING FEDERAL-DEBT, GLOBAL POLITICAL-UNREST, AND CYBER-ATTACKS ON OUR FINANCIAL-MARKETS."

(CLOSE):
THE SURVEY OF A THOUSAND INVESTORS WAS CONDUCTED IN LATE SEPTEMBER.  FOR THE FULL RESULTS--AND MORE INFORMATION--VISIT "THE-C-A-Q"-DOT-ORG.
