Which ETFs Could See a Post-Election Bounce?

News summary by MFWire's editors

A lot is riding on next week's presidential election -- including some serious stake for ETFs. Marketwatch looked into ETFs that would benefit from the presidential election.

According to the report, one sector that could benefit from Barack Obama's second term are those that invest in "green" energy industry.

ETFs that invest in alternative energy are Global Wind Energy Portfolio ETF, iShares S&P Global Clean Energy Index Fund, Market Vectors Global Alternative Energy ETF, Market Vectors Solar Energy ETF, and PowerShares WilderHill Progressive Energy Portfolio Fund.

Also, the health care sector would see more customers in case "Obamacare" becomes fully implemented. Health-care based ETFs that analysts see would benefit from this are Health Care Select Sector SPDR ETF, Vanguard Health Care Index Fund and iShares Dow Jones US Health Care Providers Index Fund. Infrastructure ETFs are also expected to benefit incase Obama gets re-elected. He promised to increase spending on infrastructure.

If Mitt Romney wins his presidential bid, commentators think the coal and oil sectors would benefit the most. These include ETFs like United States Oil Fund, S&P GSCI Crude Oil Total Return Index ETN, United States Brent Oil Fund, and WTI Crude Oil Fund.

Romney promised to increase defense spending, so this means ETFs like iShares Dow Jones US Aerospace and Defense Index Fund and PowerShares Aerospace Defense and Defense Portfolio Fund would benefit if he gets elected.
