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.

Health Care

If Obama is reelected, the health care sector will benefit since president's Affordable Care Act will increase health care spending. Further, hospitals will no longer have to spend substantial money on providing emergency care to the uninsured. Overall, the health care providers, service companies, and pharmaceuticals companies stand to benefit.

Mitt Romney, on the other hand, plans to repeal the Obamacare.
