Investors are more afraid of the stock market than they are of public speaking, unemployment or death, according to a new survey. But its other findings may give advisors something to fear.

    People don't need to fear as the survey suggests. Whatever happened to the concept of "widows' and orphans' stocks". Such today would certainly include high dividends, infrastructure income, perhaps diversified real estate income... In the right light, and with proper diligence & diversification of total assets, such approach can benefit net wealth, life income, and ultimate estate.

    True. But it's surprising how many young people don't realize that stocks can pay dividends. It's a foreign concept to them.
    (And when I say "young" I include people in their early 40s)
