What stocks are hedge funds buying?

Hedge fund stocks are revealed every quarter in government filings required by the Securities and Exchange Commission. For the third quarter ending September 30, 2018, hedge fund managers invested the most in the 30 large cap stocks listed below. We also have a list of the top hedge fund stocks that are no more, because the managers sold them last quarter. Likewise, we list the top stocks hedge fund managers bought last quarter.

How we calculate the list of hedge fund stocks

The lists of hedge fund stock holdings are compiled by analyzing the 13F SEC filings of iBillionaire’s list of the 16 best hedge fund managers. First, we equal weight the size of each manager’s portfolio. Therefore, the largest hedge funds (like Ray Dalio’s Bridgewater, the largest hedge fund in the world) do not skew the results. Second, we filter for stocks in the S&P 500. Third, we select the top 30 favorite stocks of the investment managers. Determining the 30 stocks that make up the greatest percentage of each hedge fund manager portfolio is the best way to find out which investments are favored most by those hedge fund managers. At iBillionaire we track the portfolios of the best self-made billionaires who have amassed their fortunes through financial markets and investing. For example, our list of the best managers includes Warren Buffett and Carl Icahn (the full list of the best hedge fund managers is below). Without further ado, our list of the top large cap hedge fund holdings is below.
