Since President Donald Trump was elected last Nov. 8, the stock market has been on a tear. After an initial dip on Election Day, the NASDAQ, the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average have all jumped over the past few months, with each recording a double-digit percentage gain.
The stock market's recent climb is an indicator of future public sentiment, said Barbara A. Friedberg, a former portfolio manager and owner of Robo Advisor Pros. "The markets are expecting that under Trump's presidency, personal and corporate taxes will fall and corporate growth will expand," she said. "Subsequently, it's expected that increasing corporate profits will lead to an expansion of GNP (gross national product)."
Some companies are doing especially well in this climate. Following are seven stocks that have soared since Trump took office. Perhaps these are stocks you might consider buying this year.
