What We’re Seeing From CXW

As mentioned above, Corrections Corp Of America (NYSE:CXW) had an overwhelmingly strong day on the market Wednesday. The stock finished the session with gains of 43.13%, closing at $20.31 per share after a gain of $6.12 per share.

Why A Trump Win Is So Good For The Stock

Looking at the news, there’s no denying the fact that the reason the stock is gaining so fast is that Donald Trump will be the next United States President. So, what is it about Trump’s win that is causing CXW to climb?

The answer is simple. Throughout his campaign, Donald Trump has promised to take a strong stance against crime. This means that more and more criminals will likely find themselves behind bars. At the end of the day, Corrections Corp Of America generates the most profits when its system of prisons and jails are full. So, Trump’s win is a big win for CXW and its investors.

What I’m Expecting To See Ahead
