Donald Trump's Election as President Is Making Waves on Tradebird

Want to know what real investors think about the markets and individual stocks?

Well, Tradebird, a social application for investors and traders, keeps tabs on whether its users are bearish or bullish on a wide range of financial assets and indices.

Following is a list of closely watched stocks and other assets, along with sentiment readings among Tradebird users.


1. S&P 500
Bulls are in almost complete control right now, but Tradebird index traders aren't convinced that this is the real Donald Trump effect. Fully 57% remain bearish amid the possibility of an all-time highs.

All sectors except for technology disagree with them, but it remains to be seen who will be right about the presidential election's impact.

2. Boeing (BA)
Defense stocks, together with financials, look quite happy with the Trump victory and have been on a run during the past week.

Boeing and Lockheed Martin are among those climbing the most, and this has attracted attention from our stock traders, with bullish sentiment surging to 94% over the last week.

3. Applied Materials (AMAT)
This company is expected to post fiscal fourth-quarter earnings on Thursday, and many traders are discussing it in the Tradebird chats. With Advanced Micro Devices and Nvidia both reporting solid quarterly results, the majority is expecting a beat here, with 58% bullish. 

4. Gold
After an initial pop during election night, gold has been in a steady decline. Sitting at 1,215 per ounce, it looks like an unlikely test of 1,200 might be coming our way.

Traders for the most part are trying to bank on the pullbacks hoping that it is a volatile environment and any larger sign of uncertainty can turn things around. The sentiment is 64% bullish.

5. EUR/USD
It is all about dollar strength across the board, and the outflow from emerging markets to the U.S. economy, coupled with several other likely policy changes from Trump, are driving its value up. The euro is having a difficult time on its own, and this makes it a good bet for bears.

Sentiment stands at 52% bearish but has been increasing over the past few days.

6. Facebook (FB)
Silicon Valley looks to be in a spot of trouble. Google parent Alphabet, Amazon and Facebook have all seen drops after the election results, attracting some sellers.

But the majority of stockholders both on Tradebird and in the stock market are unfazed. Sentiment has dropped for the social-network giant, but it is still very good for buyers at 88% bullish.

Facebook and Alphabet are holdings in Jim Cramer's Action Alerts PLUS Charitable Trust Portfolio. See how Cramer rates the stocks here. Want to be alerted before Cramer buys or sells FB and GOOGL? Learn more now.
