5 Financial Stocks That Have Soared Since the Presidential Election

Financial stocks have shown remarkably consistent gains since Donald Trump's election

When it comes to performance by sector since the presidential election, it'd be hard to beat financials.

Only one of the 66 financial stocks in the S&P 500 on Nov. 8, 2016 has lost ground since that date. Put another way, 98.5% of financial stocks in the S&P 500 a year ago are higher today.

That compares with "only" 76% of stocks overall in the S&P 500.

Financials have enjoyed several big pluses over the past year.
