A Trump win could put Republicans in charge of the presidency, the House and the Senate.
More than 100 business leaders have endorsed Trump, including Carl Icahn and John Paulson.
The market's performance is driven more by economics than by who is president. "Many investors will identify strategies based on the specific platforms of the candidates and eventual winner—this is intuitive and logical," Lee wrote. "We looked at 6 precedent contested elections, and interestingly, found that portfolio strategy tended to follow prevailing economic trends, rather than platforms."
Markets did well even under unpopular presidents like Lyndon B. Johnson.
The "enormously unpopular" Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, will likely be repealed.
There are merits in Trump's economic plans including corporate-tax cuts and higher infrastructure spending.
Investors would focus on Trump's potential to reform Washington, or "drain the swamp" as he says.
