Obama or Romney? Win With These ETFs


A Romney victory may benefit oil and gas stocks stocks, as well as financials, while an Obama victory may help the health care and clean energy sectors thrive.

Oil and Gas

Governor Romney says that the Obama administration's decision to limit drilling in environmentally sensitive areas and over-regulation of energy industry are responsible for the high gas prices in the US.

In his policy paper on energy, Romney has pledged that his administration will dramatically increase domestic energy production and partner closely with Canada and Mexico to achieve North American energy independence by 2020. Romney wants more oil exploration, faster permitting, and state control of exploration on federal lands.

We expect the oil and natural gas companies to benefit if Romney wins the election.
