Traders trying to get an edge on election results are watching a few notable stocks/sectors, and currently they are signaling a Hillary Clinton victory:

Guns

Smith & Wesson (NASDAQ: SWHC), Sturm, Ruger & Co (NYSE: RGR) +2.5% each - President Obama was called the gun maker's best salesman. A President Clinton would likely continue this trend with nervous gun owners worried their rights would be limited or taken away - ultimately driving gun sales.

Hospitals

HCA Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: HCA) +1.7%, Universal Health Services (NYSE: UHS) +3.1%, Tenet Healthcare (NYSE: THC) +2.9%. A Trump victory is seen as very negative for Hospitals, while a Clinton victory would be positive.

Coal

However, all is not lost though for Trump supporters. Some coal stocks are up today. A Trump victory would be extremely positive for coal producers, while a Clinton victory would be very negative. Cloud Peak Energy Inc. (NYSE: CLD) is up 2.3% today. However, CONSOL (NYSE: CNX) is flat. The sector ETF Market Vectors-Coal ETF (NYSE; KOL) is down 0.6%.
