Andrew McKillop: Al Gore’s Generation​ Investment hedge fu​nd unveils its trading strategy

Sunday, October 7, 2012 2:10
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Gore’s investment company files a quarterly report with the SEC that tells
the story about the 30 stocks in its portfolio. His company’s public claims
of investments in wind, solar, biomass and other alternative energy to
combat climate change are practically non-existent.

But his portfolio is top-heavy in high-tech, medical instruments, and even
more pedestrian investments in companies such as Amazon (AMZN), eBay
(EBAY), Colgate Palmolive (CL), Nielsen (NLSN), Strayer University (STRA),
and Qualcomm (QCOM).

He is also big in China, with stakes in a big Chinese travel agency, CTrip,
and China’s largest medical equipment manufacturer, Mindray Medical.

And if you want a piece of the natural gas pipeline game — heavily
dependent on the environmentally suspect fracking — you can find that in
Gore’s portfolio as well with Quanta Services (PWR).

Generation Investment even had a piece of Staples (SPLS) at one point –
but that was before anyone realized that was Mitt Romney’s love child.
