In case you haven’t heard — especially from him — Donald Trump‘s first year in office has been great for the stock market … but 3 companies in particular have benefited bigly from their association with the Prez.
TMZ did some research, and found that the stock price of McDonald’s — which Trump loves to eat, Twitter — which Trump loves to tweet, and KFC — another fast food favorite … have all seen huge gains since he became president on January 20, 2017.
Mickey D’s has seen the biggest boost so far during Trump’s time in office — its stock has risen 44% over the past year.
Twitter’s close behind with a 42% increase, and many argue the Prez’s usage of the social media platform is keeping it in business.
Yum! Brands, which owns KFC, has also seen a substantial 29% increase.
As we reported, Trump’s physical this week “went exceptionally well” … but he did discuss dieting with his doctor.
Gotta think 2 of these companies are rooting against that.
