Wyatt Research Week-in-Review: November 2-8

This week brought major changes on Capitol Hill. Fortunately, little changed on Wall Street.
Republicans took the midterm elections by storm, and now control both houses of Congress – authoritatively wresting control of the Senate from the Democrats. It was a major sea change in Washington. But it has had little impact on stocks thus far. And that’s a good thing.
The S&P 500 entered the week at all-time highs. It closed the week at new all-time highs. That’s the same trajectory stocks have been on for nearly a month.
After a brief but scary hiccup in the first half of October, U.S. stocks have bounced back with a vengeance, rising higher than ever before. The rally never ended. It was just on pause. It was a close call, but we’ve still gone more than three-and-a-half years without a correction of 10% or more.
Republicans. Democrats. It doesn’t matter who’s in charge. Either way, the stock market continues to chug along. And that gave our analysts plenty of fodder at Wyatt Investment Research this week.
The “next” baby boom. Mobile payments stocks. Oil producers. Auto dealers. Deep-value Russian stocks. All of it was fair game for our experts.
Here’s what else was on our mind in yet another record week for U.S. stocks:
