Paul Ryan just got a new supporter. Sort of.
Bill Gross, the co-chief investment officer of PIMCO and arguably the most well-known bond investor in the world, thanked the Republican vice presidential nominee for investing in one of his company’s funds, in a PIMCO tweet.
Ryan, a Wisconsin congressman, rose to political prominence largely on his math smarts and has an investment portfolio many would envy. Many of the big-name stocks Ryan owned in 2011, according to -- including Wells Fargo, Amazon and Apple -- have done extremely well in 2012, according to CNNMoney.
Still, Ryan’s decision to invest in a PIMCO fund may not guarantee Gross’s full political support. The investor told CNBC in February that he’s "a little Ron Paulish."
