As much as we like to tell ourselves it’s not, the stock market is a lot like poker. If you count your cards or do your analysis right, you’ll know when the odds favor you to win a particular hand or a stock is more likely to go up than down.
Yesterday, I believed that Hillary Clinton was going to be our next president. I was in good company in that belief, but I was wrong.
I also know that Donald Trump has said that he will do a number of things to turn back the clean energy revolution in the United States, and that the Republican-controlled Congress is likely to help him in his efforts.
Fortunately for me, investors in my Green Global Energy Income Portfolio, and for my readers, most of the stocks I write about are likely to have cash flows which will be largely unaffected by backing out of the Paris climate agreement, gutting the EPA’s environmental regulations, and ending the Clean Power Plan. That’s because most of my stocks focus on the ownership of existing clean energy assets which do not depend on future incentives being awarded, and most have contracted cash flows. So the future dividends which underlie the value of most of these stocks are likely to be safe.
That said, Trump is likely to do a lot more as president than just roll back environmental regulations and promote coal. He has also promised to take a hard line with both our allies and our rivals in the world. He has promised to “renegotiate” trade treaties, make our allies pay for U.S. military protection, and take a “strong” and aggressive stance toward anyone who threatens our global interests.
