Surveys Indicate Inflow of Stimulus Checks to Stocks, Bitcoin

Two independent surveys conducted by Mizuho Securities and Bloomberg show that a significant portion of the $1,400 stimulus checks to be delivered to American citizens will flow to stocks and Bitcoin.
Spending Stimulus Checks in Bitcoin and Stocks
The U.S. government has sanctioned $380 billion in direct bank deposits to citizens earning less than $75,000 a year. A married couple with two children in the low-income category, for example, would be eligible for $5,600 in the third round of fiscal stimulus since the Coronavirus pandemic began. 
Mizuho Securities surveyed households earning less than $150,000, the target audience of the stimulus. They found that 40% of respondents plan to invest the money in stocks and Bitcoin. 
One in five respondents said they would invest 20% of their $1,400 in stocks or Bitcoin. Further, 13% suggested that they would allocate up to 80% of their stimulus checks in investment assets. Dan Dovel of Mizuho wrote to his clients:
“Bitcoin is the preferred investment choice among check recipients. It comprises nearly 60% of the incremental spend, which may imply $25 billion of incremental spend on Bitcoin from stimulus checks.”
The survey concluded that up to $40 billion could flow into stocks and Bitcoin.
Another survey report from Bloomberg and Morning Consult, which comprised over 2000 respondents, found that $20-$100 billion could flow in stocks and almost “half as much” in cryptocurrencies. Popular crypto enthusiast Alex Kruger shared the results on Twitter earlier today.
