Capitalism may be the crux of the Republican platform, but if you want to make money in the years after your candidate takes office, history suggests you're better off picking a Democratic than a Republican.
"Going back to 1900, the Dow has seen an annualized gain of 8.9 percent under Democratic Presidents and a gain of 3.8 percent under Republican Presidents," Paul Hickey of Bespoke Investment Group told CNBC's "Fast Money" traders last week. "So there's a big disparity there."
According to Hickey, there have only been two democratic presidents in history that have had a negative impact on the Dow Jones Industrial Average: Woodrow Wilson and Jimmy Carter. Each of those administrations only led the Dow lower by less than one percent over the course of their respective tenures.
That data and recent events suggest that Wall Street, which currently prefers former Secretary of State Hillary Clintonto real estate mogul Donald Trump, may not get the president it wants. According to the Iowa Electronic Markets, a prediction online betting platform, the probability that we'll see a Democrat take the White House in 2016 is shrinking fast.
