26.25% Annual Return With Lobbying Stocks? Here is how it works...

I found an interesting portfolio investing idea: Invest into stocks that spend a huge amount of money to support political campaigns’. 

It's no wonder that corporations have a huge interest in spending money for politics: Each dollar should create a return of 220 bucks in the future. That's a pretty good investment in my view.

I'm no social guy and have no thoughts in my mind how governments work but stocks that have spend huge amounts for lobbying as a percent of total assets, have performed very well in the past. 

Stocks that lobby Washington beat the street by shocking 11 percent yearly!

Since 2009 a compilation of lobbing stocks generated an annual return of 26.25 percent while the Sharpe Ratio of the combined portfolio reached a high value of 0.88.

Look at my attached stock list. Hope you get some new ideas. I still introduce many investing ideas and dividend growing stocks on my blog. 

Here are the top stocks that spend a large amount on lobbying as a percent of total assets:
