10 Terrible Stocks From President Trump's First Year

President Donald Trump has been the commander in chief for just shy of a year, having taken the oath of office on Jan. 20, 2017.

And what a raucous year it has been. On the legislative front, Republicans couldn’t quite repeal the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare), but they did enact sweeping tax reform. ISIS has been all but wiped out, yet North Korea has emerged as a troubling nuclear threat. The political mudslinging – some merited, and some not – has reached epic levels.

No one can deny Donald Trump has been good for the equity market, though. The Standard & Poor’s 500-stock index has rallied 23% since he was sworn in, and gained 31% since he was elected in November 2016.

It hasn’t been a banner year for all stocks, however. Some stocks missed out on the rally and managed to move in the other direction – and that’s not just biotechnology busts or companies already doomed to bankruptcy. Several woeful performers since Trump took the country’s helm have tanked because of deteriorating results and growing investor worry.

Here’s a closer look at the 10 most notable exchange-listed large- and mid-cap losers since Trump took office. Removed from the list are oil companies still buried under the rubble of 2014’s implosion, biopharma companies that whiffed on key drug trials, and organizations that have been doomed since well before Trump became president. The names left behind are uncomfortably familiar, allegedly blue-chip outfits.
