The elections are finally over, and no matter whom you voted for, as an investor you begin to look forward. So who will benefit from another four years of President Barack Obama?

In this video, MSN Money's Charley Blaine discusses the sectors that should do well.

So far, the market has sold off considerably. Blaine believes the market will rebound in a week or two, but more importantly, he reminds investors that such declines create opportunities.

But there is one more vehicle many investors might have overlooked: bonds. With the expected tax increases on dividends, bonds would start looking more attractive.

And while the re-election of Obama might be favorable to certain sectors, several of his administration's policies, such as increased regulation, may be less supportive of others. Blaine therefore discusses the sectors investors should avoid.

The discussion about post-election trading strategies continues over in MSN Money's Facebook community.
