The Paul Ryan stock portfolio continues to shine. Two stocks that the Republican vice presidential candidate owns - Home Depot (HD) and Estee Lauder (EL) -- spiked Tuesday after both companies reported better-than-expected quarterly results.
As of mid-morning Home Depot was up 3%, making it the best performer in the Dow. And Estee Lauder's shares shot nearly 8% higher, making them the top gainer in the S&P 500.
Ryan seems to have a knack for picking winners. While Home Depot is up nearly 30% this year, Ryan didn't buy into Home Depot's competitor Lowe's (LOW). And that stock is up just 5% in 2012.
But Estee Lauder, despite Tuesday's pop, has been a laggard. Shares of the cosmetics giant are up about 6% so far in 2012. Still, Estee Lauder is one of just a small number of stocks owned by Ryan that isn't far ahead of the S&P 500 for the year.
