Clinton, Trump, Trump, Clinton - the US Presidential race is too close to call but while political events across the pond may seem far removed for UK investors, America's next leader matters. In this week's Shares we explain why you should care about the November 8 outcome, and unpick where your money should be on either result. We also discuss the tobacco industry mega-merger and explain why UK aerospace firms are facing an uphill struggle. We get under the skin of a unique energy storage technology specialist, discuss the ins and outs of 'complex' investments and our deputy editor explains the long-term cost of overseas buyouts of British businesses.
