#Stocks for the #BorderWall

Just for fun…

Let’s say the Republicans retain both Houses of Congress on Tuesday — that the so-call “Blue Wave” never reaches shore.

In that case Trump will have even greater carte-blanche to do whatever he wants and since he will be running non-stop (every day except golf days) for reelection, the top item on his broken-promises agenda will once again be wasting taxpayer dollar on his so-called “Border Wall.” Idiotic, yes, but there is money to be made bottom-fishing this sector and the stocks for concrete, steel, construction equipment and construction companies like CAT, CX, USCR, VMC, EXP, SUM.

See the charts below.

Long a short in this bull market (“broken promises”) they could have more than the bounce of the last few days, maybe even a rally on growth prospects as middle-class taxes (isn’t that all that is left to draw from?) get funneled to their coffers.

Now let say the “Blue Wave” not only arrives, it turns out to be tsunami as the Democrats take not just one but both Houses of Congress.

Having learned their lesson the Democrats realize there’s victory in jobs, jobs, jobs and the Party finally launches a massive program (FDR-sized!) to restore America’s deficient, crumbling infrastructure (to try to raise it to the level of the rest of the industrialized world or, as trains go, at least better than Bolivia), fueled by taxes on the one percent (who can afford it and then some…). Smart, yes, and there is money to be made bottom-fishing this sector and the stocks for concrete, steel, construction equipment and construction companies.
