A Biden Presidency Should Ignite AVAV And These Two Other Stocks

I spent months before the election ignoring pundits who predicted catastrophic market crashes should the "wrong" party win the 2020 election.

But, as I know they would, those predictions turned out to be so much hot air. The truth is a Republican victory would have been a bullish catalyst for one corner of the market, and a Democratic victory a bullish catalyst for another.

The close finish, which I saw coming but many of those pundits didn't, makes all the difference. The stock market loves a divided government, wherein neither party gets to run the board on policy – particularly taxes and spending.

Of course, the past two administrations have presided over incredibly powerful, profitable tech-sector growth; the Nasdaq Composite has soared some 600% since January 2009.

This has caused a likely permanent shift in the demand for tech like cloud computing and videoconferencing, transforming companies like Zoom Communications Inc. (Nasdaq: ZM) from obscure firms to household names overnight – with a corresponding impact on stock prices.
