9/6/2017 – US Steel (X) – Still a Trump Trade?
If there are any TSC members affected by the recent weather disasters, please stay safe! I know there is a member in Texas and also in Florida. I hope they were able to avert any disasters on their homestead. Prayers be with you.
I heard the President of the United States rating was up due to his response and relief efforts for the natural disasters.
Let's turn now to the charts and see how the POTUS ratings fare on a group of stocks called "Trump trades".
