Ron Paul: Money and mouth, same place

Wednesday, November 07, 2007

Fresh off a record day of fund raising that fetched $4.3 million in campaign contributions, check out Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul's portfolio of mining stocks and mutual funds courtesy of OpenSecrets.org(.pdf).

This is in addition to a few hundred thousand dollars in real estate and some other odds and ends from a filing in March of this year.

Note that the Rydex Dynamic Venture Fund (RYVNX) is a 2x short fund for the Nasdaq 100 (a big loser since March) and the Prudent Bear Fund (BEARX) is a short fund as well. Given the amounts involved, these short bets were probably just for fun.

Full Disclosure: No position in RYVNX or BEARX at time of writing.

Tim,

Dr. Paul's investment choices aside, Glen Greenwald has some interesting things to say about Dr. Paul:

I have a feeling 2008 will be a very interesting year... financially and politically.

P.S. Ian W. just left for green pastures.
