Why was Nancy Pelosi’s family making leveraged long bets on tens of millions of dollars worth of shares in Amazon, Facebook, and Apple in the last month?
According to House of Representatives official filings, soon-to-be-majority leader of the House, Nancy Pelosi, reported numerous huge call option purchases in the last few weeks – all of which are underwater now.
In September, Pelosi bought 100 Call Options (1,000 shares) in Apple (Strike $145, Maturity 6/19/20)
The positions are likely due to her husband of 50 years, Paul Pelosi – a wealthy businessman from San Francisco.
