Corporate America never was among those chanting "four more years."

Some business leaders had backed Mitt Romney hoping the Republican would pursue lighter regulation and business-friendly changes to the tax code. After President Barack Obama's victory, CEOs say they are looking for a softening of the standoff between Congress and the president that characterized much of his first term in office.

HCA surged 9% to $33.85 in 4 p.m. New York trading on Wednesday.
