Which presidents and political parties delivered the best ROI relating to stock market performance? Generally speaking, stocks have done better when the POTUS is a Democrat, but has a Republican congress. These five recent presidents recorded triple-digit stock marketing increases during their presidential terms:

- Franklin Roosevelt (D) – 197%
- Barak Obama (D) – 148%
- Ronald Reagan (R) – 135%
- Dwight Eisenhower (R) – 120%
