Where To Invest Under A Clinton Presidency

As I shared a few months ago, Americans aren’t quite sure what to make of this three ring circus we are calling a Presidential election.   With the two candidates in the throes of back and forth debates, the stock market has seen its share of nervous jitters going up and down almost in yo-yo like fashion.   What will happen with the markets if Hillary Clinton is elected President nobody knows for sure, but here are some potential smart money moves to be considering if Clinton becomes POTUS.   Will she borrow more money?  Will she change Obamacare to Hillarycare?  Will she build a wall? Will she bring jobs back to America?

  1. Infrastructure – While I cannot give you specific stocks, mutual funds, or exchange traded funds (you’ll have to call me or e-mail me for that info;), I will divulge that one of the best opportunities under a Clinton presidency will be US infrastructure. Consider this for a  . . If you have a parent or grandparent that has reached the age of 70 years old, do they become more obstinate as they age or less?  Do they get set more in their ways or are they open to new ideas and changes?   Since it will be near impossible to bring back manufacturing jobs in my opinion, Hillary will continue to borrow money from the US Government which is why we have heard very little about this on the campaign trail.   You should be thinking about bridges, roads, and broken down schools.
  1. Healthcare – Clinton has pledged to defend and build on the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare (again soon could be Hillarycare….or was it always Hillarycare from the beginning?). Adjustments to make the system work better, and the possibility of more states accepting Medicaid expansion under incentives supported by Clinton should stand to benefit hospitals. In addition, if the Obamacare exchange is fixed by Clinton, the insurance companies could also once again stand to benefit immensely.
  1. Green Energy – I’m guessing the guy who wants Clinton elected more than anybody is your good friend Elon Musk. Not Bill Maher for the record.   Hmmmm… Oil vs. Solar.  Which one do you think Musk would take?   Under Clinton regime, there are a series of national goals that are laid out which include 500 million (yes, million) solar panels to be installed and generating renewable energy.   You likely have seen and heard her opinion as its stands around global warming, so you’ll also see things like clean water initiatives infiltrate the overall Clinton agenda.
  1. Streaming – There are a number of companies who are proponents and beneficiaries of net neutrality, which requires internet service providers and governments to treat all internet data the same and provide no “fast lanes” for certain content providers, sites or users. Clinton has been a vocal supporter of net neutrality, which benefits content providers like Netflix as well as startups and up-and-coming companies.

When you begin to look for opportunity, it is smart to use common sense and try to follow the bouncing ball.  Just like Trump, Hillary is unlikely to change the way she has operated in the past and this should provide with ideas like these and others on where to go with your money under a Clinton Presidency.
