The "Wall Street" Election Poll

posted 11/2/2012 in General

11/1/12 Election Poll Highlights... 

  • In the past week ending Wednesday, the LPL Financial "Wall Street" Election Poll Index reflected a modest further move toward Republican favored industries relative to those favored by Democrats, a move that began following the first Presidential debate.

  • Over the past week, the S&P 500 was unchanged during two days that trading was shut down due to Hurricane Sandy. During the shortened trading week, stocks moved only modestly. Most notably, Democrat-favored industries that suffered losses for the week were Home builders, Construction Materials, and Health Care Services. The Republican-favored Oil Exploration and Production industry posted the most significant gain for the week.
