Jurvetson According to filings, between $15,001 and $50,000 of JPMorgan stock was added to Boehner’s portfolio in December of 2009. Since then, the stock has been a solid performer, rising more than 37%. The United States’ largest bank boasts an outrageous $2.3 trillion in assets and should be considered a strong choice despite the company’s recent lawsuit struggles.
4. Automatic Data Processing (NASDAQ:
ADP) According to ADP’s website, the company’s services are used for paying one in every six U.S. employees. That totaled $1.4 trillion in transactions during 2013. That superb market position has helped ADP notch net income growth in each of the past three years. Boehner’s filings indicate that he owns between $15,001 and $50,000 of ADP stock. The stock has been a winner for the Speaker’s portfolio, rising 40% since it was added in November 2012.
3. General Dynamics (NYSE: GD)
General Dynamics is involved in everything from aerospace to missiles and marine systems, and regardless of how cliché the investment might seem for a Republican Congressman, I think it’s a fantastic pick. General Dynamics showed up in Boehner’s portfolio in 2009 and has gained 43% since. Given that he has between $15,001 and $50,000 in the investment, that’s not a bad chunk of change. Source: Cliff
2. Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:
JNJ) The legendary stalwart was added to John Boehner’s portfolio in 2009 and is up an unbelievable 64% since then. Better yet, after he added between $1,000 and $15,000 in 2012, Johnson & Johnson’s stock price has risen 42%. The company doesn’t just keep the tears out of babies’ eyes. Johnson & Johnson is the world’s sixth-largest consumer health company, the largest medical devices and diagnostics company, the fifth-largest biologics company, and the eighth-largest pharmaceuticals company. And what else is Johnson & Johnson? It’s yet another solid value pick in Boehner’s portfolio.
1. ConocoPhillips (NYSE: COP) If
you head over to ConocoPhillips’ website, you’ll find it very clear what the company’s core mission is: “We exist to power civilization.” This stock has also powered its way to the top of the list! ConocoPhillips is one of the largest exploration and producers of crude oil and natural gas. And it’s yet another big stable company that has found a home in Boehner’s portfolio. The stock is up a whopping 123% since it was added to Boehner’s portfolio in 2009. That’s a tremendous gain on the stated investment of between $15,001 and $50,000. Source: Steve Morgan
