12 Best Nancy Pelosi Stocks to Buy Now

In this article, we discuss the 12 best Nancy Pelosi stocks to buy now. If you want to read about some more Nancy Pelosi stocks, go directly to 5 Best Nancy Pelosi Stocks to Buy Now.

The stock trading activities of lawmakers in the United States have always made for interesting case studies. This is because a sizable number of US lawmakers engage in stock trading. Until the past few years, making large amounts of money from these trades was considered a side-benefit of winning a seat in the US Congress. In order to make these trades more transparent, the STOCK Act of April 2012 was passed, requiring lawmakers to disclose their stock trading through a Periodic Transaction Report within 45 days of the transaction.  

Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives since 2019, is one of the most active stock traders in the US Congress. Her husband, Paul Pelosi, runs a venture capital firm. Some of the top stocks in the Nancy Pelosi stock portfolio include prominent names like Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN), Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT), and Meta Platforms, Inc. (NASDAQ:FB). Lately, Pelosi has been quietly buying the dip on tech stocks that have witnessed a large correction in their prices due to rising interest rates. 

Our Methodology

The companies listed below were picked from the Periodic Transaction Report(s) that US politicians who trade stocks are obliged to file. It is important to clarify that the stocks listed below were picked from the public record of investments Nancy Pelosi and her family have made in the past few months. The purchases may not have been made by Pelosi herself but only disclosed on behalf of her husband, Paul Pelosi, who runs a venture capital firm. Data from around 900 elite hedge funds tracked by Insider Monkey in the third quarter of 2022 was used to identify the number of hedge funds that hold stakes in each firm.

The company’s spend-centric model has been helped by fiscal stimulus ensuring a flush consumer, while management continues to execute well by adding millions of new consumer and small and medium business accounts, which should benefit the franchise over the medium to long term. We remain optimistic regarding the company’s prospects as travel and entertainment activity rebounds, adding to our position in the quarter.”

9. Micron Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ:MU)

Number of Hedge Fund Holders: 74   

Micron Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ:MU) designs, manufactures and sells memory and storage products worldwide. It is one of the premier stocks in the Nancy Pelosi stock portfolio. On October 21, Micron Technology noted that it had signed a license and settlement agreement with subsidiaries of Wi-LAN.

In its Q2 2022 investor letter, Meridian Funds, an asset management firm, highlighted a few stocks and Micron Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ:MU) was one of them. Here is what the fund said:

“Micron Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ:MU) is a leader in the production of DRAM and NAND memory. We invested in the stock in the third quarter of 2019 during a cyclical downturn in the memory industry. Our rationale was that, while the memory industry is cyclical, we believed there are strong secular drivers in place that will lead to higher peaks and long-term growth. Our secular thesis is based on our conviction that the quest for ever-increasing compute speeds will increasingly rely on memory to solve bottlenecks and that increased memory content in nearly everything from mobile phones to automobiles will drive demand. Micron’s stock traded lower during the quarter due to macroeconomic concerns that led to lower earnings expectations. We increased our stake in the company, as we believe our secular thesis remains intact. We wanted to take advantage of what we view as temporary cyclical concerns that caused the stock to trade at less than 10x reasonable trough earnings per share (EPS) estimates and less than 7x recent peak EPS.”

8. Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA)

Number of Hedge Fund Holders: 88   

Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) designs, develops, manufactures, leases, and sells electric vehicles, and energy generation and storage systems.

On October 20, Deutsche Bank analyst Emmanuel Rosner maintained a Buy rating on Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) stock and lowered the price target to $355 from $390, noting that the company reported a Q3 earnings miss compared to expectations, with mostly in-line revenue but weaker gross margins, and is still positioned to deliver a record Q4 as its factories continue to scale globally.  

At the end of the third quarter of 2022, 88 hedge funds in the database of Insider Monkey held stakes worth $7.3 billion in Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA), compared to 73 in the preceding quarter worth $7.1 billion.

“In 2014, before we began to invest in Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA), I called Roger to ask whether he thought Elon Musk’s electric car business would succeed. I did not believe that Roger, an owner of dealerships that sell cars powered by internal combustion engines (ICE) would likely have a favorable opinion of Tesla’s prospects. That was principally for two reasons:

First, automobile manufacturing and distribution is unusually complicated, capital intensive, and highly regulated, which makes profitability problematic; second, cars with ICE motors require extensive annual maintenance, and dealer services revenues, not profits from automobile sales, are the most important contributor to profits of perpetual licensed ICE car dealerships.

Penske Automotive Group is principally an ICE car dealer. Since electric cars are powered by batteries and need little service, franchised dealerships are incented to sell ICE, not EV automobiles. Further, Roger had been a long-term director of General Motors. General Motors’ ICE automobile business would be disrupted if Tesla were successful. (click here to read more…)

7. NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA)

In its Q2 2022 investor letter, Baron Funds, an asset management firm, highlighted a few stocks and NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) was one of them. Here is what the fund said:

“At the company-specific level, there was a broad correction across the entire portfolio. While four of our holdings contributed to performance, the contribution to absolute returns was less than 100bps combined, as unfortunately none of them was large enough to move the needle. We had 16 investments detracting over 100bps each with NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA), our second largest detractor, costing the Fund 254bps.

NVIDIA’s stock was hit even harder, down 44.4%, impacted by concerns over the health of the consumer, dramatic declines in crypto, and COVID-related lockdowns in China. Despite the sell-off and the increased near-term volatility in its gaming business, NVIDIA’s revenues grew 46% year-over-year with 48% operating margins, driven by continued strength in its data center business as companies across industries adopt AI and ML…(read more)”

PayPal Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:PYPL) operates a technology platform that enables digital payments on behalf of merchants and consumers worldwide. It is one of the famous stocks in the Nancy Pelosi stock portfolio.

A financial disclosure report shows that Pelosi exercised 50 CALL options (5,000 shares) on PayPal Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:PYPL) stock in January 2022 worth somewhere between $500,000 and $1,000,000. The report is dated late February 2022 and signed by the Speaker herself. 

On October 24, Atlantic Equities analyst Kunaal Malde maintained an Overweight rating on PayPal Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:PYPL) stock and lowered the price target to $110 from $120, noting that given the increasing likelihood that the US and global economies will enter recession, the advisory was now assuming a modest economic downturn in 2023 forecasts.

In addition to Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN), Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT), and Meta Platforms, Inc. (NASDAQ:FB), PayPal Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:PYPL) is one of the stocks in the Nancy Pelosi stock portfolio.

In its Q2 2022 investor letter, Mayar Capital, an asset management firm, highlighted a few stocks and PayPal Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:PYPL) was one of them. Here is what the fund said:

“This quarter, we bought shares in PayPal Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:PYPL), the payments platform. PayPal has been one of the more high-profile victims of the market’s brutal ruthlessness over the past few months, and the stock fell by over two-thirds between its peak in July to the beginning of March this year. As we progressed PayPal through the Mayar Checklist Process, we identified a business with a leadership position in a structurally growing market.

The company benefits from certain network effects and faces several competitive threats at the same time. As the business profited from the move to online retail during the pandemic, as well as from the stimulus cheques handed out in the US, the stock price soared to absurd levels. As so often happens, however, the market had overcorrected by February and this quarter was offering prospective shareholders prices that assumed essentially zero growth in the business. When life gives you irrational sellers, make lemonade!”
