Boy am I glad that the election is finally over. I don’t know about you, but frankly I was sick and tired of hearing about Hillary’s emails and Trump’s grabby little hands. While most of my liberal friends are absolutely beside themselves, my unapologetic capitalist friends are ecstatic. There’s nothing that takes your mind off a rough week in politics like getting filthy rich.

Some serious head scratching took place as the Trump rotation began. The VIX had spiked following the reopening of Clinton’s email probe, implying the market was upset about the prospects of a Trump Presidency. However, since then, we’ve been in a rip your face off rally. And surprisingly it’s not in the stocks you’d think.

For example, Rogaine maker Johnson and Johnson (JNJ - Free Report) has struggled to push above $120, selling off into the $115s over the last couple of days. There’s been virtually no improvement in tanning salons or hair dye either. Out of nowhere Pant suits have rallied. Lane Bryant parent company Ascena Retail (ASNA - Free Report) is up big since the election. Rallying up from $5 to $6.44.

Big money has been rotating into the Financial Sector (XLF - Free Report) , Industrials (XLI - Free Report) and Health care (XLV - Free Report) . The recent interest in health care is very surprising as you’d think Trump’s decision to repeal and replace Obamacare would hurt those stocks. However, don’t forget the witch hunt on Capitol Hill targeting drug companies that were hiking up prices. Under a Clinton regime, those stocks would have come under serious pressure to change their pricing policies. The election of Trump has caused a relief rally in drug stocks and given a shot in the arm to the entire sector.

Fund flows have been seen coming out of consumer discretionary which is exactly why I’m looking at stocks like Foot Locker which just reported an earnings beat earlier today. Foot Locker is a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) stock right now. A big reason why is 4 analysts increasing their estimates of how much money they thing Foot Locker is going to make next year. The bullish attitude has pushed up our Zacks Consensus Estimate or the average of all these earnings guesses, up to $5.25 per share.
