The Trump rally, as its being called, continued Tuesday as the major averages all finished higher. Buoyed by a rebound in oil patch (WTI Crude closed 5.8% higher at $45.85 a barrel) that lifted the sector almost 3%, the rally pushed the Dow Jones Industrial Average to another record high on Tuesday in its seventh straight session of gains.
But while the rally continued investors were glued on bigwig investors like Warren Buffett and Carl Icahn. The Oracle of Omaha, for instance, revealed stakes in three major U.S. airlines sending shares of American Airlines (AAL) , United Continental (UAL - Get Report) and Delta (DAL - Get Report) up substantially. Not to be outdone, Icahn, the famed corporate raider, disclosed he had cut stakes in several companies including Chesapeake Energy (CHK - Get Report) and Transocean (RIG - Get Report) , while also extending his tender offer for auto parts company Federal-Mogul (FDML) .
But while most investors were still focused on the election fallout and/or what their heroes (or anti-heroes) were buying and selling during the Trump rally, TheStreet and its affiliates were hard at work finding investible, interesting and exclusive content to help you mold your portfolio. Oh yeah, we also got to play some Super Mario today. Oh, the nostalgia. Nice job Nintendo!
