Hillary Clinton's odds at victory in November improved last week, but the stocks that stand to do well under her presidency remained largely unmoved.

TheStreet's Hillary Clinton Stock Portfolio, a set of 15 stocks identified that could do especially well with Clinton in the White House, dipped a slight 0.17% from market close Friday, September 23 to market close Friday, September 30, just barely underperforming the Donald Trump Stock Portfolio, which declined 0.06%. Aecom (ACM) - Get AECOM Report , Netflix (NFLX) - Get Netflix, Inc. Report and Renewable Energy Group (REGI) - Get Renewable Energy Group, Inc. Report were the top performers of the week, and American Electric Power Company (AEP) - Get American Electric Power Company, Inc. Report , Smith & Wesson (SWHC) and Goldman Sachs (GS) - Get Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. Report did the worst.

The former secretary of state scored a win at the first general election presidential debate on Monday, subsequently enjoying a boost in the polls.

Her opponent Donald Trump subsequently suffered through a series of self-inflicted blunders -- continuing a feud with a Latina beauty queen, taking to late-night tweeting and delivering a perplexing speech in Pennsylvania. Clinton, in the meantime, continued to beat the drum on her campaign message and allowed her rival to keep the largely unflattering spotlight.

Aecom, the top performer in the Clinton portfolio last week, rallied 4.17% to $29.73 at market close Friday. The company announced last week that Mark Whitney has been appointed chief operating officer of its nuclear and environment strategy business. He previously spent 11 years at the Department of Energy.
