At the end of 2015 we picked 5 big issues that we thought investors would focus on in 2016. Less than two months into the year and 3 of these 5 issues have already played out. Woolworths announced they will sell Masters, 3 out of 'The Big Four' banks have traded below their 2015 lows (CBA is the exception) and today BHP have announced they will cut the dividend. We put these questions to a selection of Livewire contributors &feature=youtu.be and we also opened it up to Livewire members. The results of your responses are in the charts below. You can also see the responses to the full survey here: (VIEW LINK). (Note: We also have your stock picks which we will be following throughout the year)

No surprises on the cut, but the size of the cut might surprise a few!
