Hillary has won… here are some stocks to buy

Don’t be alarmed, you did not unknowingly go into a three-week hibernation and miss the election. Hillary Clinton has not actually won the 2016 Presidential election, but the reality of the situation is Donald Trump has about as much of a chance of winning the election as I do of winning the Powerball lottery this weekend.

It was always going to be an uphill battle for Trump to claim the presidency, but recent audio recordings of his lewd comments towards women, in addition to multiple women coming forward and accusing him of sexual assault have really all but won the election for Secretary Clinton.

According to a FiveThirtyEight, Hillary Clinton now has an 87.2% chance of winning the election. Sure, there are likely to be some hidden Trump voters out there who are not admitting their intent to vote for the businessman, and there will be some voters who change their mind at the last minute and vote Trump instead of a third-party option, but it would take a miracle at this point for Trump to become America’s next president.

To be clear… I am not a supporter of either candidate. I have gone back and forth on whether I want a wildcard in office, or a long-established politician that offers more of the same. To me, neither option is exactly what the country needs at this time, but it is hard to ignore the polls, which by and large forecast a landslide victory for Clinton on November 8.

Can Trump pull a rabbit out of his hat at the last minute? Sure. If anything, he is persistent, and he will definitely fight to the very end, but at this point it is almost certain that Clinton is going to be the next president. So let’s look at a few stocks that will benefit during her term as Commander in Chief.

We have already run pieces in the past on what stocks to buy for either a Trump or Clinton presidency, and some of those stocks will repeat in this article, while we will also throw a couple new names into the list.
