The Companies To Invest In, In The Event Of A Clinton or Trump Presidency

August 10, 2016 in Daily Bulletin

Which companies will benefit from a Clinton win? A Trump win? Kiplinger put together an analysis:

  • Trump wants to cut taxes on the rich so companies that market luxury products should see a boost.
  • He is running on a law and order platform which should mean a boost in business for private prisons.
  • The Republican candidate is also running on a platform of bringing manufacturing back to the United States. Companies that already manufacture in the country might have an edge.
  • Clinton is looking to cut taxes for lower income households. That should be a boost for companies that cater to them such as Walmart.
  • Democrats also typically support the continued use of government intervention in the housing market, which should keep demand high and real estate companies in the black.
  • Companies that rely on low income foreign workers, such as those in the hospitality industry, could also benefit from the path to legalization that Clinton envisions.
