Business Insider executive editor Sara Silverstein talks about the stock market‘s rally one year into President Donald Trump’s term. She finds that despite Trump’s constant attempts to take credit for stock gains, that his return for the first 12 months is just the fifth-best in the post-war era. She shares reporting from Business Insider’s Joe Ciolli that while some parts of the so-called “Trump trade” may have faded, companies with small and medium business exposure have consistently outperformed since last November. A Goldman index tracking that group of stocks has climbed 38% over the past year, nearly double the S&P 500, while the NFIB Small Business Optimism Index hit its highest level in 12 years just months after Trump’s election.
