Here is a recap of what the executives had to say:
- Bill Ackman, billionaire investor and hedge fund manager: "I woke up extremely bullish on Trump. We now have a business man as president, and he has power."
- Stanley Druckenmiller, founder of Duquesne Capital: "I'm quite, quite optimistic on the economy."
- Mohamed El-Erian, Allianz SE (ADR)
AZSEY 1.05%'s chief economic adviser: "If he focuses on corporate tax reform, on infrastructure, on deregulation, the markets would like that."
- Bob Iger, CEO of Walt Disney Co NYSEDIS: "We're not as competitive as we need to be as a country. I think that is going to be addressed on a timely — meaning a fast — basis. That's certainly good."
- Indra Nooyi, CEO of PepsiCo, Inc.
PEP 0.12%: "I think we should mourn for those of us who supported the other side. But we have to come together and life has to go on."
- James Paulsen, Wells Capital Management's chief investment strategist: "If Trump is the best for the economy, he's also going to be the best for the stock market."
- Kate Richard, CEO of Warwick Energy Group: "I think a Trump presidency is actually very bullish long-term for oil and gas."
- Arthur Steinmetz, CEO of Oppenheimerfunds: "The S&P 500 has done better when the president's popularity rating is below 50 percent."
- Jason Trennert, Strategas Research Partners' founder: "It would be pharmaceuticals, it would be financials that you'd want to look for."
- Richard Lefrak, president of the Lefrak Organization: "I think Donald is going to be a fantastic leader."
