Investors Expect Stock Market Gains To Slow Under Biden, New Survey Finds

H/T The Daily Caller.

The stock market under Joe Pee Pads Biden will be as anemic as it was under Bathhouse Barry Obama or even worse.

Investors and business leaders are largely pessimistic about the stock market’s prospects under a Joe Biden administration, according to a new survey.

More than 100 chief investment officers and portfolio managers were surveyed by CNBC, and two-thirds of them said they expected stock market gains to be lower under a term of President-elect Joe Biden than President Donald Trump. Many of them fear Biden will undo President Trump’s 2017 tax cuts, which helped spur record profits and increased stock buybacks, according to CNBC. 

 

The Trump administration’s regulatory rollbacks also helped the market to record growth, CNBC reported. The S&P 500 is up more than 60% since Trump’s inauguration in Jan. 2017.

 
 

Biden’s tax plan proposes raising capital gains taxes and reinstituting a higher corporate tax rate, according to CNBC. Among those surveyed, about two-thirds still predicted a strong 2021 for the market, as the Biden administration will likely be more focused on economic stimulus and COVID-19 recovery than addressing tax policy. They also predict some industries to outperform others, such as consumer goods, finance, and industrials, according to CNBC.
