A blog I read called Political Calculations uses dividend futures data to try 
and predict the market's upcoming behavior. Based on his work, the overall mass 
of market participants seem to have a very near term view, for example in this 
recent post he is discussing how most investors seem focused on 2016 Q1 and Q2 
dividend data:


So is it realistic to expect the market as a whole to react to something that, 
at best, is multiple years away?

Perhaps your upcoming book will start to get the word out more. In the meantime 
I agree with Alejandro that investors focused more on specific stocks like GOOG 
and NVDA may be a bit more willing to invest based on longer term horizons, 
leading to the significant outperformance in those companies since October.
