  • Thanks for your comment, and you make a great point. The stocks mentioned are solid companies that make sense in a lot of portfolios. However, of the Of the 535 members of Congress, in 2011, less than 17 held shares in Comcast, Shutterfly, Salesforce, and Facebook. Also, some of the stocks mentioned come with high risk/high reward, I was a little surprised to see those type of moves in a 70-year-old's portfolio.

  • Why are these surprising? They're relatively mundane tech stocks. You'd find them in the portfolios of thousands of people in and outside of the political world. It looks like she or her advisor has an interest in tech - what's so surprising about that?

Transcript

  • 1. 5 Surprising Stocks in Nancy Pelosi’s Portfolio
  • 2. 5. Apple Inc. Apple has been a main say in Pelosi’s portfolio since 2006, and is up an outrageous 641% since then. As of the end of 2012, Pelosi’s portfolio held between $1,000,001 and $5,000,000 in shares of Apple stock. Source: Joe Ravi
  • 3. 4. Comcast Corporation Comcast has been a part of the Minority Leader’s portfolio since 2002 when Comcast acquired AT&T Broadband. Since late 2002 Comcast stock price has increased a solid 213%. The portfolio currently holds between $250,001 and $500,000 in Comcast stock. Source: Dave Winer
  • 4. 3. Shutterfly, Inc. Shutterfly made its first appearance in Pelosi’s portfolio in 2000; with an original investment between $1,001 and $15,000. The stock didn’t go public until 2006, which makes it difficult to estimate earnings, however, I can say for sure Shutterfly’s stock has appreciated by 218% since it’s original IPO. Pelosi’s portfolio current holds been $15,001 and $50,000 in shares of Shutterfly. Source: Airwolfhound
  • 5. 2. Salesforce.com Salesforce.com, as we know it today, first shows up in Pelosi’s portfolio in 2000, with an original investment of $15,001 to $50,000 Similar to Shutterfly, Pelosi seems to have acquired shares in a private offering. The stock is up an unbelievable 1219% since its IPO in 2004. Pelosi’s portfolio currently holds between $500,001 and $1,000,000 in shares of Salesforce.com. Source: Jamie de la Fuente
  • 6. 1. Facebook Inc. When I uncovered Facebook was added to the Minority Leaders portfolio in May of 2012, it was undoubtedly the shock of the day. The stock is up 46% since then, not a bad chunk of change consider an original investment between $100,001 and $250,000. Source: Soerfm
