Chief Investment Officer Jason Gunkel gives a historical background on how the market has behaved as a result of presidential elections. He describes how the stock market tends to struggle in the months prior to the election, but in the following months, it tends to do well, according to Lord Abbett. Jason also reveals how the market activity three months prior to the election can sometimes be a predictor of whether the challenger or the incumbent candidate wins.
