66% Think Domain Values will Rise in 2012
66% of domain name investors think values will increase in 2012 compared to 2011, according to Domain Name Wire’s 7th annual industry survey.
That’s the highest percentage since 2008, when 75% were bullish.
This year, 25% think values will be roughly the same as last year while 9% think they will fall.
What domainers think isn’t necessary a good predictor, however. Much like the stock market, it seems that investor sentiment is somewhat of a lagging indicator. At the beginning of 2008 domainers were similarly bullish, only for it to be one of the toughest years yet for domain valuations as the bottom fell out of the monetization market.
