Real estate came out on top, with thirty-one percent of respondents choosing it as their top pick. Stocks moved the the second most popular choice after being first in 2018. This year, stocks earned 20% of votes by Americans for long term investments.
Following behind stocks were cash investments, gold and precious metals, and bonds. It is of note that real estate was the top choice for all generations--especially millennials, Generation X, and baby boomers--and all salary categories, from those who earned $30,000 a year or less to those who earned more than $75,000.
