In last week’s midterm election, Republicans held onto the Senate and the Democrats claimed control of the House, bringing potential gridlock to Congress. This week we discuss some investment implications, including highlighting the positive seasonal tailwinds now in place for stocks. We also discuss potential winners and losers at the sector level post-election, and some risks that the leadership change in Washington may present. Most importantly, with the election out of the way, we welcome the opportunity to focus on fundamentals, which we believe remain quite positive.
