Super Tuesday is now behind us, and each political party has a presumptive nominee. Barring something catastrophic, the Democratic nominee will be Hillary Clinton, and barring the cessation of something catastrophic, the Republican nominee will be Donald Trump.
It is still anyone’s guess who will actually win the White House, though a great many pundits—on both sides—believe the winner to be inevitable. If your own political insight leads you to believe that Hillary Clinton is going to win this one, you might consider investing in the following stocks before the rest of the country figures it out as well.
Some companies have top executives, or even corporate cultures that have supported Clinton for years, while others are almost certain to be beneficiaries of her almost certain policy leanings. Only one is, somewhat cynically, just a really, really big donor, and we’ll get that one out of the way first. As always, remember to consider these ideas to be just that, ideas, and do your own research before investing your own money.
