Ever heard of Swisscom AG (OTC Markets)? Neither have I, but Bob Corker has. It operates public telecom networks and offers network application services…in Berne, Switzerland.

Senator Corker owned it for 4.4 months in 2014 and made a 53.86% annualized return on his money (16.86% for his hold period).

Did I mention it trades OTC?

Ever heard of Wolters Kluwer NV (OTC Markets)? Neither have I, but Bob Corker has. It provides its customers with information-enabled tools and software solutions to manage businesses efficiently…and it’s headquartered in Alphen A D Rijn, Netherlands (or just northeast of Zoetermeer, because I always use Zoetermeer as my north star).

Senator Corker owned the stock for 34 days in 2014 and made a 61.23% annualized return on his money (4.69% for his hold period).

Did I mention it trades OTC?

Finally, let’s head stateside and take a look at Senator Corker’s 56 day investment in Monster Beverage Corp.

Senator Corker owned Monster Beverage for 56, repeat, 56 days in 2014 and made a 59.10% annualized return on his money (7.38% for his hold period).

I think Senator Corker’s trading prowess points strongly and naturally towards the conclusion that he should resign effective immediately in order to start a hedge fund. Note: There are many more trades like these, I just picked three of them.
