As part of the weekly research here at The Acquirer’s Multiple we’re always interested in superinvestors who hold the same stocks that appear in our Acquirer’s Multiple Stock Screeners, based on their latest 13F’s. Investors such as Warren Buffett, Joel Greenblatt, Carl Icahn, Jim Simons, Prem Watsa, Jeremy Grantham, Seth Klarman, Ray Dalio, and Howard Marks.
While doing this research we also uncovered a number of superinvestors that currently hold stocks that don’t appear in our screens at the moment. So we’re now providing a new weekly feature article called ‘One Stock Superinvestors Are Buying‘ which features one stock that appears in a number of superinvestor portfolos, and who’s buying it, or holding it. This week we’ll take a look at:
