The Top Stock Holdings of Majority Leader Eric Cantor
by Fay Faatin, KapitallWire staff writer
Eric Cantor is a United States Representative from the 7th congressional district of Virginia and is also the current Majority Leader of the House.
In December of 2011, Cantor tried to block the passage of the STOCK Act which was designed to outlaw insider trading in Congress by requiring all Members to disclose their financial assets and transactions. Moreover, this was an Act that had overwhelming bipartisan support, and yet Mr. Cantor seemed to have qualms about it. Oh, and did I mention his wife is on the board of Directors at Domino’s Pizza, Inc (DPZ), which happens to be Cantor’s top holding with around $1M worth of their stocks?
Besides Cantor’s love of pizza, there is nothing conspicuous about his portfolio. He has a decently diversified assortment of company stocks as well as a reasonable amount of money in funds. Like his other colleagues, Cantor also invests a good amount in Goldman Sachs (GS).
1. Domino’s Pizza, Inc. (DPZ, Earnings, Analysts, Financials): This is Mr. Cantor’s topmost holding because he owns between $500,001 and $1,000,000 in stock options as well as another $100,001 – $250,000 in regular stocks.
