General Electric (NYSE:GE) is one of the most outstanding dividend plays out there. Not only has the company paid out a dividend for more than 100 uninterrupted years, it has also grown that dividend in most years. GE’s current yield of 3% is considerably higher than the Dow Jones Industrial Average (INDX:INDU) average yield of 2.76%.
Anything that would threaten that dividend is, therefore, likely to reflect badly on GE stock. Power and Water are GE’s largest revenue segments, contributing roughly 25% to the company’s top line. And right now, one of GE’s major business threats could be changes that are likely to affectthe energy sector under Trump. Investors fear that sale of power plant upgrades by companies like GE might suffer if the U.S. bails out of climate change treaties under the Trump administration. The view is that Trump will be awful for clean energy and the climate change fight since he has promised to rip apart environment regulations, including the Paris Climate Agreement, and said that he thinks climate change is a hoax created by the Beijing government.

That was exactly the top-line result for Cara Therapeutics (NASDAQ:CARA) when the company reported first-quarter results on May 9, and while the stock did take a minor hit on the announcement, the important news for this clinical-stage biotech had nothing to do with the numbers.

Most investors have probably heard of energy giants Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE:RDS-A) (NYSE:RDS-B), Dominion Energy (NYSE:D), and TransCanada (NYSE:TRP). Fewer, however, are likely familiar with their publicly traded master limited partnerships (MLPs): Shell Midstream Partners (NYSE:SHLX), Dominion Energy Midstream Partners (NYSE:DM), and TC Pipelines (NYSE:TCP). That might be a good thing, as the market has beaten up the latter trio this year, sending their valuations south.
