We look forward to a great 2017 and will continue on our path providing the average investor an easy to follow strategy to invest their money in the stock market.
The Trump Effect
Whenever a new President is elected, many Americans try to predict how the new President will effect their lives and the lives of others. This is also true for investors as well. If you've followed politics since the election in November, as it relates to the stock market, one thing is clear no matter who you voted for. What Trump says and/or tweets matters! There have been several instances of Trump mentioning a company in a tweet, followed by the drop or rise in that companies stock price depending if the message is perceived negative or positive. So if that's the type of news you like to keep up with, following him on Twitter might not be a bad idea. And if you would like to go further...now there's an app made just for keeping up with stocks related to Trumps tweets! So far Trump has tweeted about the following companies, and instantly created a move in their stock prices: Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Ford, General Motors, and Toyota. A few of which are part of the 30 stocks included in the Share Repurchase Portfolio. Subscribe now to see which are included.
So you not only have to consider what his policies will be for the long-term, at least the next 4 years, but also how his "Twitter Fingers" will effect you? Well if you're an investor, not so much. If you're sticking to a plan, staying diversified, and invest versus speculating, then his random tweets won't be a huge cause of concern for you on a daily basis. As part of our strategy, we buy and hold for 30 months. So far from what we've seen, stocks like Toyota mentioned above, regained their initial loses shortly. Some within minutes, others within days. We will however know a lot more in the coming weeks as Inauguration Day is coming soon (Friday January 20th, 2017). One thing I can guarantee you, no matter whether you are Democrat or Republican, is that the stock market will rise...and the stock market will fall! Words of Wisdom!
