🐐 Warren Buffett’s Stock Portfolio

Warren Buffett's 13F filings are among the most closely watched in the investment world.

In Q4 2023, Buffett's moves were relatively subdued.

He increased his investments in Sirius XM, Chevron, and Occidental Petroleum.

Buffett continues to raise his stake in Occidental Petroleum and now owns 28% of the entire company.

On the sell side, Buffett slightly reduced his significant holding in Apple by 10M shares, which constitutes about 1% of his total position.

Additionally, Buffett scaled back his investments in HP and Paramount.

Lastly, he completely exited his positions in Globe Life, StoneCo, Markel Group, and D.R. Horton, although these were relatively minor components of his portfolio.

💰 Stanley Druckenmiller’s Stock Portfolio

Stanley Druckenmiller is one of the world’s most famous investors, known for working with George Soros and betting against the British Pound in the 1990s.

Druckenmiller had an eventful Q4 2023 as per his latest 13F filing.

While he reduced his Nvidia position by 29.40%, he purchased Nvidia call options with a notional value of $242M.

Druckenmiller bolstered his Microsoft position, which now constitutes 12.19% of his overall portfolio, and increased his stake in Coupang, his second largest position.

Lastly, he completely closed out of his Alphabet, Amazon, Alibaba, and T-Mobile positions.

📈 Chris Hohn’s Stock Portfolio

Billionaire Hedge Fund Manager Chris Hohn, known for his activism as well as charitable donations, oversees a towering $36B through his TCI Fund Management.

His investment approach is heavily concentrated, with just 11 positions making up his entire portfolio.

In Q4 2023, Hohn trimmed his positions in Ferguson, Canadian National Railway, Thermo Fisher, and Canadian Pacific Kansas City.

He added to his Moody’s position, which ranks as his third-largest holding and purchased a tiny amount of Alphabet Class A shares ($GOOGL).

Most importantly, Chris Hohn purchased Microsoft, making it his 6th largest position at 11.12% of his portfolio.
