Trump's had quite a year.
And so have the 50% of Americans who have had money in the stock market.
The market saw a 31% gain over those 12 months. And that 6,190-point gain by the Dow actually was better than the 20% rise in George H. W. Bush's first year in 1989-90 and exceeded only by Franklin Roosevelt's 70% gain in 1933-34. The Dow rose about 19% in Barack Obama's first year in office.
Throw in the recent rewriting of the U.S. tax laws to cut the nominal corporate tax rate from 35% to 21% and that hopefully will enhance the profit-making potential of companies and raise the prospects for dividends and stock buybacks for equity holders even more.
