Any change of any kind knocks wall street on it's heels briefly, nothing new here. It will bounce back.

It doesn't make any sense, that is true, but stock markets can be that way. I figure that, it is because America is filled with crazy people, and some of them own stock.:danceban:

I just read that a while ago. Prison stocks are up and gun stocks are down. It named Ruger and Smith and Wesson in particular. They said that people are not rushing to buy guns because Trump is the president elect.

It's not complicated, the high finance types all know exactly what kind of businessman Trump is and they're reacting accordingly. We're gonna have to take the bad with the good, 2A rights and stuff are safe enough but now we have other things to worry about

Easy answer: The panic demand for guns is over.......the 2A is now under less of a direct threat because HRC is trashed. That said...many thanks to Barack Obama and the Clinton's for causing the wildfire growth of gun ownership in the USA. Gun sales may resume to normal pre-Obama levels and that will cause a loss of earnings for gun manufacturers ergo a loss in stock price.

Wall Street is plagued by the same disease as the rest of the country. People make major decisions based on their emotions of the moment rather than careful analysis and consideration of all the logical angles. We will have a volatile, unpredictable, generally unprofitable stock market as long as that is the case.

Hopefully it's just a passing ailment of this particular generation, and the next one can get back to business...

It's not just the gunmakers- Trump will be the NRA's worst nightmare. Obviously supported him but the NRA makes all of its money by sowing FUD. Every other month at least they run the worst picture they can find of President Obama (skin darkened in photoshop, natch) with prediction of fresh doom to be unleashed at any moment. Never mind that it never materializes, they keep stoking the fear. With a purported champion of the 2nd Amendment in the WH though, and Reps in control of both houses, it will pretty hard to keep on selling that stale old tale forever.

Hmm. Interesting point. Will be interesting to see what their next campaign will be.

Now this is very interesting. I wonder how many people saw this coming?

Gun stocks fall after Trump win, November 9, 2016 - Business Insider

It is a reaction that was not unexpected. S&W and Ruger stocks dropped sharply after the election, supply and demand combined with new state gun control regulations. Healthcare and subsidized solar energy also dropped. Some of this is irrational trading based on speculation but some is based on principal. If Obama Care is repealed, many healthcare companies will need to become more competitive. solar won't be as viable if it's not government subsidized. There is no payback if any cost benefit ratio is applied compared to less expensive energy sources.

What has been even more remarkable is predictions of a 5% or more drop in all markets. The markets ran up two days before the election. Stock futures were -500 and grew another -100 points as each swing state fell into the red. Yesterday we saw over a 1,000 point swing with stocks ending up another 235 points. That was not predicted. Now, the S&P is almost at another all time high.

When you see bond sell offs it's time to buy equities and that's what is happening. Companies that have good fundamentals should be considered buying opportunities although we may see some sector rotation.

Techs were off yesterday for crazy reasons too. The market was showing the likes of Amazon, Goggle and Apple all run by liberals what they thought. Financials (Wall Street Banks) energy, mining and materials and also defense contractors were up sharply also on speculation that pipe lines will be built, coal will be mined again and oil fracking will continue and there will be more military spending. These sectors are where I see some very good buying opportunities now.

I could see the Dow reach 20,000 by the end of the year.

Maybe you missed the last 8 years of gun control legislative attempts all over the USA. Might want to catch up before you embarrass yourself. The 2A has been under severe threat with the death of Justice Scalia. Did the NRA make that up too? No doubt the NRA made up the whole HRC/WJC assault weapons ban in 1994 too eh?

Yeah it's all fear mongering......:confused:

The NRA has failed utterly to contain antigun attempts on the West Coast. And you need to understand that the new restrictions in CA had nothing to do the photoshopped Boogie Man Obama on the cover of every other issue. The credible threats are at the state level where their alarmism is still perhaps valid. Most of the other 'dire threats' since Heller are mostly lurid fever dreams in the unhinged minds of the loony right. I'm not saying there are no threats, just that it will be hard to keep up the relentless onslaught of FUD with a Republican president, house and senate.
