15 Ways Chicken Little Made Money in the Trump Rally

US Stocks have gained almost 10% since Donald Trump was elected. As detailed in previous posts, Chicken owns only a tiny amount of US stocks, which means that he makes almost no money directly from the stock market rally.

So is Chicken Little missing out on the rally? No. At the bottom of this post, there is a list of 15 ways that Chicken Little has made money because of the stock market rally. This article is the reverse of one from January of 2016: 15 Ways Chicken Little Lost Money in the Stock Market Decline

The government will be able to pay a lot of our medical bills, our pensions, and make social security payments. The chances for peaceful times will be higher. 

The better the stock market does, the better our outcomes. The specifics differ for each of us, but the message of the same. We all own the stock market.
