The political climate in the U.S. has been pretty tumultuous over the last few years. There’s no doubt about it. The recent midterm elections were especially heated. With the Democrat’s flipping the house and creating a mixed Congress, the battle in American politics stepped up a notch. Gridlock and continued infighting are definitely on the menu. And with that, investors are banking on plenty of “nothing” coming from the Federal Government over the next few years. The gridlock shouldn’t create many waves in terms of policy direction or new laws.
That is, except for one sector.
Infrastructure could be a major winner from the midterm elections and a new government. It seems building out America’s roads, bridges, pipelines and broadband is the one area that both the Trump Administration and Democrats agree on. That could make various infrastructure ETFs big winners from the midterm elections over the next few years.
