Despite the complaints from around the world with regards to Donald Trump becoming the 45th President of the United States of America, shares on the US Stock markets actually rose. Apparently thats the first time in 50 years that the value of stocks and shares rose, albeit modestly, when a new President is inaugurated. If you own shares in once UK Companies such as Cadbury’s or Schweppes then you now own shares in a US Company as these companies were taken over by Kraft and Dr Pepper.
