After waking up to the news that Trump had won the election and immediately being filled with feelings of shock, disbelief and fear, I spent a good few hours trying to find something good that could come out of this situation. Otherwise, I would've driven myself crazy.
Finally, I came across this, the pharma industry seems to be one of the only industries to have reacted in a positive way to what's happened. Being a recruiter within the pharma market, it has certainly filled me with a sense of optimism as to what the future holds (... well, work-wise anyway!)
It's a subject that I'm sure most people have an opinion on, so keen to hear anyone's thoughts?
Confirmation that Donald Trump will be the next president of the United States has had a substantial negative impact on global markets. But there is one sector in Europe that looks like it could be in for a pretty hefty boost from a Trump presidency — the pharmaceuticals industry. Earlier, both the US futures markets, and Asian assets tumbled on news that Trump was pulling away from Clinton. Then, when European markets opened, stocks across the board tumbled, with major bourses falling as much as 3.5%. However, on Wednesday, pharmaceutical stocks are jumping, with FTSE 100-listed Hikma Pharmaceuticals up almost 6% as of 9.50 a.m. GMT (4.50 a.m. ET).
