If one was to take anything from the presidential and vice presidential debates, the incumbent and challenging administrations have pretty different views on climate change and the need for green energy.
Joining TheStreet to break down an investor's survival guide to the 2020 election, Real Money contributor and Chief Investment Officer at Tematica Research Chris Versace said investors will need to keep a close eye on energy stocks, from the traditional oil conglomerates to up-and-coming solar power companies.
Versace said energy stocks will be important to watch regardless of whether President Donald Trump or former Vice President Joe Biden wins the White House.
"If the Democrats win, I wouldn't be surprised if we see the Green Deal agenda advanced even further," Versace said.
Outside of solar and more obvious green energy plays, Versace suggested investors keep an eye on traditional car companies who have moved to begin or ramp up production of electric vehicles - looking at you Ford (F) - Get Report and GM (GENERAL MOTORS) .
