Dow's 31% gain during Trump's first year is the best since FDR

The 30-stock index has surged more than 31 percent since Trump's inauguration.

That marks the index's best performance during the first year of a president since Franklin Roosevelt.

"You've got lower taxes, less regulation and confidence in the economy is high," said one investor.

The S&P 500 has surged 23 percent during Trump's first year in office.
