Nancy Pelosi Outperformed Every Hedge Fund in 2023, Up 65%

Congressional trading has been a hot button issue for a long time, and it’s something that Market Rebellion co-founder Jon Najarian has called out many times before. In an interview on the Wealthion platform earlier this month, Jon Najarian said, 

“There are a lot of folks out there who follow whatever the politicians do. There are entire services that are basically formed so that you can trade what Nancy Pelosi is trading. And it’s not just Democrats or just Republicans that do this, it can be anybody that holds office in the United States. Believe it or not folks, those people trade on the information they get from committees all the time.”

As a pioneer of unusual options activity — a strategy that involves tracking suspicious and unusual option trades that we spot underneath the surface of the market, Jon Najarian knows the dark reality of backroom trades better than most. 

Despite action from some politicians, including the recent PELOSI Act raised by senator John Hawley which seeks to ban congressional trading, it’s still taking place to this day. That act was named after U.S. representative Nancy Pelosi, who has unquestionably become the face of congressional trading. Her performance in 2023 speaks for itself. 

Nancy Pelosi Outperformed Every Hedge Fund in 2023

You heard that right. Below, note Bloomberg’s list of the 2023 performance of many notable hedge funds and Wall Street institutions. The best performer, Whale Rock Long Only, put up an impressive 59.3%. The famous Citadel put up 15.3%. Many were in the single digits. All skilled investors at the top of their industry managing millions, and in some cases billions of dollars.

However, all paled in comparison to Nancy Pelosi, who put up an eye watering 65% gain in 2023, outperforming even the Nasdaq, which posted its best year in over two decades. 

According to Quiver, Pelosi filed at least 20 trades in 2023, including a recent trade filed in December of 2023 in Nvidia call LEAPS at the $120 strike expiring in December of 2024 worth millions of dollars. 

Nancy Pelosi’s massive outperformance is a great example of why we at Market Rebellion follow unusual options activity and “the smart money” so closely. When you see a massive, unusual trade under the surface of the market, you never know exactly who might have cast it, what information they might know, or what power they might have. And we know for a fact that Nancy Pelosi is not alone — many people in powerful positions including sitting politicians are no stranger to trading. Unusual options activity is how we’ve been able to spot so many colossal trades that ultimately foretold massive buyouts, earnings beats, and massive market moves.

Try Market Rebellion’s unusual options activity today — it’s the only way to see inside the minds (and wallets) of the Wall Street elite.
