Which party wins the United States presidential election in November could have a major impact on how investors play the stock market for years to come, says a Florida Atlantic UniversityCollege of Business professor who has studied the financial implications of more than four decades of political power struggles.

These findings are outlined in the paper, "What To Expect When You're Electing," published in the journal Managerial Finance, and are based on an analysis of security market returns relative to the political party of the president, the Federal Reserve's monetary policy, the year of the president's term and the state of political gridlock.
