Nidhi, I second John's points. Granted we are all speculating to an extent, but from what I have seen, your viewpoint is completely backwards. When Obama came into office, investment froze completely because of his foolish socialist agenda that cripples growth. He talks a great game, but its usually misleading just like "You can keep your doctors." Most I keep company with on the left and right see Obama as one of the least intelligent business and economic minds of US history. Obamacare has been a destroyer for small business entrepreneurship and jobs in general. Socialism does not support or encourage entrepreneurship. There may be others here who will disagree, and they are welcome to their points. Again, I can only speak from my experience, and Obama has been a disaster for entrepreneurship from day one. In fact, I had a few larger $M deals back in 2012. The qualifying factor was the investor was waiting to see if Obama would be elected again before they invested.
As long as Trump surrounds himself with a team with full competence, I think as he begins to repeal some of Obama's policies, you will see investors see a new hope for the markets and begin investing and hiring and building again.
Put in simple terms think of it like this. You have $100. A guy is elected who says he knows how to spend your money better than you. Therefore, he is going to take more of your money in the form of taxes to pay for programs he believes are a better use for your money. Then a woman comes along and says "yeh..need a little more of your money. I too know how to better spend it than you."
Or a guy comes in and says, "You earned your $100. I think you are smart enough to invest and spend as you see fit. Im going to stay out of your pockets."
Which one are you reserved because you don't know how much of your money will be taken from you? And with which one do you feel more comfortable aligning investments?
