THE WISDOM OF THE MARKETS:

No Fortune 100 CEOs Back Republican Donald Trump (REBECCA BALLHAUS and  BRODY MULLINS, Sept. 23, 2016, WSJ)


No chief executive at the nation's 100 largest companies had donated to Republican Donald Trump's presidential campaign through August, a sharp reversal from 2012, when nearly a third of the CEOs of Fortune 100 companies supported GOP nominee Mitt Romney.

During this year's presidential primaries, 19 of the nation's top CEOs gave to other Republican candidates, including former Gov. Jeb Bush and Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis of campaign donations. [...]

Jeffrey Immelt, the CEO of General Electric Co., who gave to Sen. Lindsey Graham during the GOP primary, called Mr. Trump's comments about Mexicans and Muslims "unacceptable" in an interview with Vanity Fair last month.
