Nearly half of Americans surveyed by the Wells Fargo/Gallup Investor and Retirement Optimism Index said they are worried about outliving their savings. When respondents are divided between those with $100,000 or more in assets and those with less, non-retirees with $100,000 or more in assets are especially pessimistic about the prospect of earning more than they are currently. 'Investors are saying they're more optimistic about the economy and the job market. But non-retirees worry about their ability to earn more in their lifetime, and they are skeptical the stock market is the place for them to grow their savings' said Karen Wimbish, director of Retail Retirement at Wells Fargo (WFC).
