One of the best resources for investors are the publicly available 13F-HR documents that each fund is required to submit to the SEC. These documents allow investors to track their favorite superinvestors, their fund’s current holdings, plus their new buys and sold out positions.

As a new weekly feature, we’re now providing the top 10 holdings from some of our favorite superinvestors based on their latest 13F-HR documents.

  1. Hi Johnny, just wondering, what exactly is “Impact on Portfolio” a measure of. For example when BHC was purchased and it’s “Impact on the Portfolio” was 2.78%, does that mean it’s weighting in the portfolio went up by 2.78%? Thanks in advance!

    1. Thanks Sanjee. I’ve actually changed the heading for clarity to read ‘% change’ but yes. In the case of BHC it went from being 12.3% to 15.2% of the entire portfolio.

      1. Understood! Thanks Johnny. I’ve recently been reading the Acquirer’s multiple such just easing myself into this space.
