I don't play the markets. With that said and with absolutely zero knowledge of this game, I think if I were to start playing I would put my money in defense related companies. Energy can be hit and miss but one thing we can be pretty sure about with Trump is that he will be building up our military preparedness and that will take lots of military equipment from guns, ammo, bombs, planes and just about anything else the military needs. Just be careful to not put any money in those companies that make $800 dollar hammers!
