Transactions of Famous Investors
Every quarter, institutional investment managers must file a 13F form with the SEC that lists all their U.S. equity-long positions. Examining these filings offers valuable insights into the investment strategies of renowned investors. By analyzing famous investors' holdings, one can gain valuable information about market trends, potential new investment ideas, and the sentiment of prominent financial players.
Michael Burry - Scion Asset Management
In Q1, Michael Burry increased his exposure to Asia making JD.com and Alibaba Group his largest long holdings. Further, perhaps as an effect of the recent banking crisis, he increased his exposure to the financial sector, adding companies such as New York Community Bancorp and Capital One Financial. Worth noting when considering Mr. Big Short’s holdings is that 13F filings only disclose equity holdings and not short positions.
David Einhorn - Greenlight Capital
Since Q3 2019, Green Brick Partners has been David Einhorn’s largest holding. During Q1 he further added to his position in CONSOL Energy, Teck Resources, Tenet Healthcare, Global Payments, and Capri Holdings. A new top 10 holding that he bought in Q1 is Black Night.
Li Lu - Himalaya Capital Management
Li Lu is perhaps famous for his close relationship with Charlie Munger and for having him as an investor in his fund. Looking at Li Lu’s historical 13F filings he usually isn’t very active quarter to quarter. In Q1 2023 he reduced his position in Micron Technology and added more to Bank of America. He further bought a new holding, East West Bancorp.
