Who Was Long Romney With An Obama Hedge

|Includes: BAC, C, GOOG, GS, JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM), MS, MSFT, UBS, WFC

Here is a list of Top Contributors to Mitt Romney Campaign.*

The top five are: Goldman Sachs ($994,139), followed by Bank of America ($921,839), Morgan Stanley ($827,255), JPMorgan Chase ($792,147), and Credit Suisse Group ($618,941).

The list is further inundated with other bulge brackets: Wells Fargo ($598,379), Citigroup ($465,063), Barclays ($428,250), UBS ($400,390), Blackstone Group ($360,225) and Bain Capital ($279,220).

You can also look at the Top Contributors to Barack Obama Campaign.*

The list is markedly different, headed by University of California ($1,092,906), Microsoft ($761,343) and Google ($737,055).

What is most interesting is that some of the top contributors to the Mitt Campaign also had significant contributions to the Obama Campaign: Goldman Sachs ($184,925), Bank of America ($237,235), Morgan Stanley ($212,572), JP Morgan Chase ($268,260), Credit Suisse Group ($70,156), Citigroup ($191,904) and UBS ($113,402). This translates approximately to a net exposure of 80% to Romney Campaign with a 20% hedge on Obama Campaign.
