On this day next week, you’ll know whether President Barack Obama and his family remain at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, or whether Mitt Romney will have a reason to forward his mail to Washington, D.C.
There will still be plenty of challenges ahead, no matter who wins this highly charged election. But with the stakes higher than ever, so are the opportunities to protect and expand your personal prosperity.
During the past few weeks, we’ve been having a friendly debate here on Tuesdays and Thursdays in Uncommon Wisdom Daily — examining the profit opportunities behind the candidates’ promises.
And there are plenty … both when it comes to promises AND potential profits! Best of all, you can start seeing results long before you have to hear the words “presidential debate” again!
In fact, we’ve identified 25 potential Presidential Profit-Doublers … investments set to skyrocket based specifically on who earns the nation’s top job.
To help you prepare for what to do first on November 7, here is a quick guide about three key growth areas — stocks, energy and financials — where the candidates have campaigned at great length, based on our recent discussions.
And stay tuned to find out how you can get our specific stock and sector picks in these and other hotly debated sectors … delivered straight to your inbox the morning after the winner makes his acceptance speech!
Election years tend to be good for stocks — with the Dow Industrials gaining approximately 8% since 1904 — with much of that gain taking place in November and December.
The market has risen approximately 68% since President Obama took the reins of the country. But where do stocks go from here?
In 1989, the year George H.W. Bush took office, the Dow Industrials soared by 23%. A similar move would translate into a 3,000-point jump today. Could we see the same with a Romney victory?
If the Obamas remain in the White House, it would likely be positive for stocks and potentially negative for bonds. (Here are three reasons why.)
However, if tax rates drop across the board, many individual and corporate deductions would likely be eliminated. Bigger tax bills could result in municipal bonds and annuities becoming more popular than ever.
Right now, however, our enormous debt load will continue to be a problem — one that the winner will have to address. In the meantime, spiraling debt puts the dollar in danger. This makes foreign stocks and bonds especially attractive because they are non-dollar-denominated investments.
Both candidates have spoken at length about their plans for energy going forward. And energy goes hand-in-hand with one of the biggest issues in this year’s election: Jobs.
President Obama’s goal is to generate 80% of our electricity from clean energy sources by 2035. That’s an ambitious upgrade from the previous goal — 25% by 2025 — laid out in the 2008 Democratic Party platform.
To help get us there, he expects to add 600,000 jobs in natural-gas development by the end of the decade. So, a big push to reach the new target would be bullish for all sorts of alternative-energy stocks.
And don’t forget oil.
Domestic crude production is expected to rise 12% this year and 8% in 2013 — its highest level since 1993. Current projections target GDP growing 3% and 3.6 million jobs being added by this “re-industrialization of America” by 2020.
If Romney sweeps the election, he says he will encourage more drilling by streamlining and improving the permitting process, opening up new areas and boosting overall drilling activity.
He said he will do that by giving states more power to regulate exploration and production on their own border and on federal lands inside their borders.
Romney also said he will limit the power of the Environmental Protection Agency to restrict production and possibly open up access to previously prohibited areas. And the companies that get these contracts could make a lot of money for themselves and for shareholders.
There’s no question that the Federal Reserve and other central banks around the world have helped to put a floor under asset prices.
Ben Bernanke has said that he plans to step down in January 2014, after two terms as Fed chairman. But he’s also promised to keep interest rates low into 2015, which means there are no guarantees.
While ultra-low interest rates haven’t done much to help investors and savers, it has played a part in some manufacturing stocks enjoying an upswing as consumer confidence creeps higher and more houses and cars get sold — two areas that have expanded significantly since Obama’s term began. And manufacturing alone could see 1 million new jobs by late 2016.
While Romney has publicly never been much of a Bernanke fan, he’s looking to ease financial regulations like the Dodd-Frank “Wall Street Reform and Consumer-Protection Act” and the Sarbanes-Oxley “Public Company Accounting Reform and Investor Protection Act.”
Under Romney’s plan, repealing or modifying these laws could light a fuse under corporate America’s profits, especially the banks.
