5 Super Investors And Their Portfolios

In this week’s blog post, I will talk about 5 value investors and their current holdings. I gathered the data used in this blog post from the US Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) form 13F. SEC Form 13F is a quarterly report that is filed by institutional investment managers with at least $100 million in equity assets under management. Please understand that 13F data not extremely reliable because:

  • There is a time delay between when the manager buys the equity and when the 13F is filed. So, we are left with backward looking data.
  • The manager could actually be shorting a stock, and bought shares of that same stock as a hedge. The short positions do not appear on 13F, but the fact that the manager bought shares do. So, don’t blindly follow the 13F stock picks – understand the manager’s true position. You don’t want to end up buying shares of a company that the manager is actually shorting.
  • 13F filings only shows the domestic stocks held within the portfolio. The manager could be heavily invested internationally, but the 13F filing will only show the manager’s domestic (US) holdings.

Despite these above factors, 13F filings are very useful since it gives us an idea about the stocks these superinvestors are looking into. Let’s look at the 5 value superinvestors and their portfolios. I have hyperlinked the stocks symbols to display yahoo finance’s current trading price of that equity.
