What Are The Favorite Holdings of Some of the World's Top Money Managers?
In our Q2 Fund Report (link below), we revealed the top 100 most widely held stocks of the 96 different institutional investors that we tracked throughout the quarter.
Not surprisingly, companies such as Apple, JP Morgan Chase and Co. and Bank of America topped the list. Apple was the most popular holding of them all - of the 96 funds that we tracked in the second quarter, exactly half (48) held at least one share of Apple at the end of the quarter.
I thought that it would be interesting to look at some of the most recognizable institutional investors and money managers in the world to see what their top holdings were in Q2.
