Hillary Clinton Haters Will Love These Two Stocks to Buy

Hillary Clinton

Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton holds sway over U.S. markets. Over the past three weeks, two comments from her wiped millions off the value of an industry...

A 21-word tweet from Clinton sent the SPDR S&P Biotech ETF (NYSE Arca: XBI) - a collection of some of the largest biotech stocks on the market - down 5% on Sept. 21. The former first lady struck again Oct. 30. She tweeted an attack on prisons. Prison stocks promptly took a dive. Corrections Corp. of America (NYSE: CXW) fell as much as 6% when the tweet surfaced - a $200 million loss of value.

But there's one sector that is proving impervious to Hillary Clinton rants. In fact, the last time a politician took aim at this industry, it doubled during the worst financial crisis in recent memory.

When it comes to stock market corrections, the urge to sell and run for cover is completely understandable - but it's the wrong move.

Instead, when the going gets tough, the tough... go shopping.
