History underscores that shareholders are investing in companies, not a political party

It’s natural for investors to seek a connection between who wins the White House and which was stocks will go. Regardless of who wins, nearly a century of returns shows that stocks have trended upward.

It is also unlikely that making investment decisions based on control of the chambers of Congress will lead to better financial outcomes.

Stocks tend to reward disciplined investors no matter who is President or who controls Congress. This election season, fight the urge to take actions driven by emotions such as fear or greed. Hiring a financial planner can help you stay on track and provide you with well-reasoned advice if and when you become emotional.
