Market Extra: U.K. election — these are the stocks and sectors to watch once the result is in

The outcome of the U.K. election is looking a lot more uncertain than predicted, setting investors up for a major market shake-up once the final results are known Friday morning, analysts say.

Exit polls are pointing to a surprise setback for the ruling Conservative Party, putting Theresa May’s party at risk of losing its majority in parliament. The early results are also pointing to a slight swing in favor of the opposition Labour Party, although not enough to put it in the pole position.

“This is important in light of recent well-publicized pledges by the political parties, but Labour in particular, to change the way these companies do business in their respective sectors,” said Michael Hewson, chief market analyst at CMC Markets, in a note out earlier this week.
