HCA, Aetna, Toll Brothers, and Lennar specifically look good.

 


The veil of uncertainty is finally lifted. So which stocks benefit from a second Obama term… and which ones could get hurt?

President Obama’s reelection means the Affordable Care Act – better known as ObamaCare – will not be repealed.  That means hospital and health-care stocks should benefit as medical insurance coverage expands to millions of people who are not insured right now.  Some of the big players in the industry are: HCA (NYSE:HCA), Tenet Healthcare (NYSE:THC), HealthSouth (NYSE:HLS), and Aetna (NYSE:AET).

The housing sector could also benefit. President Obama is likely to extend or expand programs designed to help avoid more foreclosures… and that could help boost demand for new homes. The biggest homebuilders are Hovenanian (NYSE:HOV), Toll Brothers (NYSE:TOL), Lennar (NYSE:LEN), and PulteGroup (NYSE:PHM).
