One of the Top Trump-Proof Stocks to Own Now

Trump proof stocks When President Donald Trump tweets negatively about a company, the company's stock price can quickly drop.

Boeing Co. (NYSE: BA) shareholders know this all too well, as the BA stock price dropped by 1.5% after President Trump tweeted on Dec. 6, 2016, that the company's costs were out of control.

And these volatile price swings are why it's so important for investors to own Trump-proof stocks in 2017.

Money Morning Director of Tech and Venture Capital Research Michael A. Robinson expects this to be a continuing trend throughout the Trump presidency.

"The truth is, it's likely we can look forward to this kind of 'volatility' from here on out," Robinson said on Dec. 15.

But Robinson has one stock that provides high-growth, low-stress protection from President Trump's tweets.

And there's a lot to like about this stock:

  1. Over the last 12 months, this stock has climbed 43%. In comparison, the Dow Jones Industrial Average is up just 23.73%.
  1. This company pays its shareholders a dividend of $0.62 per share, which is a yield of 1.56%.
  1. The stock price has a one-year price target of $181.86, which is a potential profit of over 13% from where it's trading today.
  1. This stock has an average rating of "Buy," according to FactSet.

"I can't imagine any mere 140 characters are going to ding it," Robinson said.

But he also said it's only a matter of time before Wall Street and everyone else starts to notice this stock.

Fortunately for Money Morning readers, you'll be getting ahead of the crowd on owning this top Trump-proof stock.

Here's everything you need to know about the stock Robinson said will provide "stress-free upside potential."

The top Trump-proof stock to own now is UnitedHealth Group Inc. (NYSE: UNH).

"There are so many massive profit catalysts lining up under this stock it's hard to cover them all," Robinson said.

But he narrowed it down to two...

One of the biggest profit catalysts for UnitedHealth in 2017 will be the disbanding of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

UnitedHealth care was expected to lose $850 million in 2016 from ACA policies.

"Under the Affordable Care Act, insurers were having a tough time building policies that were affordable for individuals but also profitable for the insurers. In October, many insurers announced they could not sustain the losses and pulled policies from a number of states," Robinson said.

So when the policy is officially repealed or modified, UnitedHealth can save close to $1 billion. The company could then use that money to grow its business, increase its dividend, or initiate a stock buyback.

The savings can help the UNH stock price climb in the short term. And Robinson believes there is a long-term trend that will increase profits for years to come.

The biggest and most powerful trend for UnitedHealth is the aging population of the United States.

In 2014, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, there were 46.2 million people in the United States over the age of 65.

That's roughly 14.5% of the U.S. population.

But by 2040, that number will grow to 21.7% of the population as baby boomers continue to age. And by 2060, retirees will represent almost one-third of the U.S. population.

"That is the kind of long-term trend that makes healthcare insurers so compelling. There's a captive market. The related pharma and biotech segments will have drugs that come and go over the years, but there's no guarantee that any of them have the wired-in growth of healthcare insurers," Robinson said.
