Investors and traders alike are becoming interested in next year's elections. While some are jumping to conclusions about the outcome, we think the story is just beginning to play out.
Things are beginning to heat up, with regular coverage on the networks and the chance that the New Hampshire primary will be moved to December. This could alter the campaign dynamics dramatically.
Our Election Project monitors the daily news on the campaign front with the investor in mind. We do not advocate any party or candidate. Our objective is to examine each candidate's issue positions and prospects. We then try to identify specific stocks that may gain or lose with that candidate's changing fortunes. We actively solicit input on candidates, issues, and stocks. Readers can best do this via comments at the forum. We will use these to develop specific candidate stock portfolios to be tracked at Stockpickr.com.
Investors following the election should also monitor the insightful commentary of my colleague at TheStreet.com, John Fout. John not only writes regular articles on the campaign, but he now has a daily feature tracking political blogs. This search link locates the most recent columns. This is a great addition to what we do in tracking the regular news sources on a daily basis at Election Stocks.
