Congress might ban lawmakers and their families from trading stocks.
There are no laws preventing Nancy Pelosi, as a member of Congress, and her husband from owning and trading stocks, but Congress is considering such a ban. In September, the House introduced the Ban Congressional Stock Trading Act, which would force lawmakers and their immediate family members to either divest their investments or place them in a blind trust.
Although Nancy initially opposed banning members of Congress and their families from owning investments, she has since backed the bill, Insider reports.
Why do retail investors follow Paul Pelosi’s stock picks.
Nancy doesn’t trade stocks herself, but her husband does. Retailer investors often follow Paul’s stock picks. Many of Paul’s trades have been long-term winners, said Christopher Josephs, co-founder of the social investing app Iris.
"We've been tracking their performance, and every single stock he has bought in the last two years has gone up significantly," Josephs told Yahoo Finance Live.
In July 2021, Paul made $5.3 million executing call options to buy 4,000 shares of Google’s parent company, Alphabet. His investments include $2.9 million in shares of Disney, Apple, Amex, and PayPal, according to a public disclosure by Nancy, as reported by Insider.
The Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge Act of 2012, also known as the STOCK Act, requires members of Congress report stock transactions made by themselves or their family members.
In September, Paul exercised his Alphabet stock options valued at between $1 million and $5 million, just a week before the bill banning lawmakers and their families from trading was introduced, Insider reports.
Paul also lost over $754,000 in September when he sold his call options for Nvidia and Micron Technology after President Joe Biden signed the CHIPS and Science Act of 2022 into law, Insider reports.
