Trump and Administration: Risk Factor for Hundreds of Companies

MyLogIQ study reveals that, in the last 90 days, 538 public companies have disclosed Donald Trump and his administration as a risk factor in their SEC filings. A large increase since weeks after the election, when only two companies were disclosing, then president-elect, Trump as a risk factor.

Many of these companies are in the Manufacturing and Finance, Insurance & Real Estate sectors, as shown in the chart below.

While all industries were included in our study, we have disclosed the top 7 and the number of companies, for said industries, who disclosed Trump as a risk factor below.

MyLogIQ searched through hundreds of SEC filings and though distinct industries are impacted differently by the Trump administration, a consistent factor for all industries was uncertainty.

Examples of those disclosures are shown below.

CTI BIOPHARMA CORP (CTIC) – Pharmaceutical Preparations

“Additionally, uncertainty and speculation regarding the possible repeal of all or a portion of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act has emerged after the recent election of the President of the United States. Members of the Trump administration, including the President, have made statements suggesting the administration plans to seek repeal of all or portions of the Affordable Care Act, and have stated that they will ask Congress to replace the current legislation with new legislation.
