Another win for Nancy Pelosi as this stock soars 23%

Another win for Nancy Pelosi as this stock soars 23%

In recent months, Nancy Pelosi’s exceptionally well-timed investment in the semiconductor giant Nvidia (NASDAQ; NVDA) has doubtlessly taken the spotlight

This fact hardly comes as a surprise given that Pelosi has made ten times her annual salary in approximately four months by betting on the blue-chip chipmaker.

Still, it is far from the Representative’s only savvy investment, and one in particular came back with a vengeance on the night between March 5 and March 6 – Crowdstrike (NASDAQ: CRWD).

Nancy Pelosi bought approximately $1 million worth of CRWD shares in 2020, and the stock skyrocketed in the most recent extended session by as much as 23%.

Why is Crowdstrike stock surging?

Crowdstrike’s exceptional extended trading surge – coming at the heels of a significant daily decline of more than 5% – was driven by a particularly strong earnings report upon the stock market’s closing on March 5.

CRWD managed to beat analyst expectations in terms of earnings per share (EPS) – $0.95 compared to $0.82 – and revenue – $845 million vs $839 million.

It also recorded significant growth as the period that ended on January 31 saw its net income stand at $0.22 per share – $54 million – compared to a $0.20 loss – $48 million – one year prior.

The success was further compounded by Crowdstrike’s strong full-year guidance published at the same time.

How much is Nancy Pelosi up on the Crowdstrike investment?

Given that Representative Pelosi acquired CRWD shares early in September 2020 at approximately $125 and that the company’s latest close placed it at $279.56, the Congresswoman logged an impressive return rate of 123.6% even without accounting for the extended session.

In total, accounting for the extended trading, the return rate comes much closer to 200% at 193.2%. Assuming the surge, evident at the time of publication, will hold until the market is open, Nancy Pelosi will find herself $1.9 million richer on Wednesday thanks to the Crowdstrike investment alone.

As can be inferred from Representative Pelosi’s returns, Crowdstrike has recorded strong growth in recent years. The 5-year chart for CRWD shares records a 363.78% increase, although there has been some turbulence, with the stock rising in 2021, falling in 2022, and rising again in 2023.

Indeed, the last 52 weeks of trading have also been very positive, and Crowdstrike is 133.22% in the green in the time frame. The ongoing year, however, has been more mixed, though CRWD stock is still 20.52% up.

Finally, despite the last 30 days of trading showing a 1.51% decline and despite Crowdstrike closing the last full trading session 5.18% in the red at $297.56, the extended hours – which saw the stock skyrocket 23.24% to $366.70 – proved enough to propel CRWD to a new all-time high.
