Obama And You- 2

In case you are wondering how you can use President Elect Obama's resounding victory (there, I used the word again!) to benefit your current investment portfolio, I suggest looking back at the sectors/industries that he discussed during his time on the campaign :

1. Infrastructure: Barack Obama believes that it is critically important for the United States to rebuild its national transportation infrastructure – its highways, bridges, roads, ports, air, and train systems. Companies doing business in these areas should certainly benefit in a big way. Obama has promised to address the infrastructure challenge by creating a National Infrastructure Reinvestment Bank to expand and enhance, not supplant, existing federal transportation investments. The Bank will receive an infusion of federal money, $60 billion over 10 years, to provide financing to transportation infrastructure projects across the nation.

2. HealthCare: Obama has stressed on revamping the health sector...presumably a lot of money would be invested in this sector. Health Care companies should stand to benefit in the next 4 years.

3. Energy: President Elect Obama has a lot of goodies for this sector....increased job generation, committment to put a million hybrid plug in cars on the road by 2015, reduce green house gas emissions, increased importance to renewable sources of energy etc.

Based on President Elect Obama's industry proposals, here are a few companies that will face better prospects in the near future:

You get the general idea....With the markets as depressed as they are, lots of good deals out there in these industries and others.
