Donald Trump pounced on reports the FBI is doing more digging into Hillary Clinton's emails Friday afternoon. Stocks that stand to do well with him in the White House remained relatively flat, despite at least slightly improved chances at him winding up there.
TheStreet's Donald Trump Stock Portfolio, a set of 15 stocks that could benefit from the Republican presidential nominee's policies, is down 0.02% for the day approaching market close Friday. TheStreet's Hillary Clinton Stock Portfolio dipped more. The broader markets fell as well after bureau chief James Comey said in a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee that the FBI would be reexamining Clinton's email use at the State Department in light of new emails uncovered in an unrelated case.
The New York Times reported the new emails found were discovered after the FBI seized devices belonging to Clinton aide Huma Abedin and her estranged husband, Anthony Weiner, who was enveloped in a sexting scandal this year.
Trump reacted to the revelations shortly after the story broke. "Hillary Clinton's corruption is on a scale we have never seen before. We must not let her take her criminal scheme into the Oval Office," he said in a statement.
A number of stocks in the Trump portfolio were up for the day Friday.
Bitcoin Investment Trust (GBTC) , a Bitcoin-based vehicle that may serve as an alternative investment if Trump spurs market uncertainty, climbed 2.53%. Northrop Grumman (NOC) , which would benefit under a military spending-heavy Trump administration, gained 1.83%. The Geo Group (GEO - Get Report) , the private prison company that might be enlisted as part of Trump's mass deportation plan, rallied 1.16%.
Other stocks, however, were in the red. Mexican cement maker Cemex (CX - Get Report) , which could provide materials for the real estate magnate's border wall, dipped 2.79% ahead of market close, and ExxonMobil (XOM - Get Report) fell 2.46%. The oil giant reported earnings earlier Friday, beating estimates slightly.
Here's how the entire Clinton portfolio is performing on Friday in the wake of the FBI investigation revelations, leading with the best performers:
Bitcoin Investment Trust 2.53%
Northrop Grumman 1.83%
The Geo Group 1.16%
