Over the last three months, the world’s best investors have been buying large-cap tech stocks, including Alphabet (Google), Meta, Amazon, and Microsoft.
It was revealed in Form 13F filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in the United States.
All institutional investment managers with management assets of $100 million or more must file quarterly Form 13F reports.
As part of these quarterly reports, they have to disclose their equity holdings, which gives retail investors a glimpse into what the smart money is doing.
It is impossible to mimic large hedge fund trades as they are only required to file their Form 13F within 45 days after the last day of the calendar quarter.
Understandably, most funds conceal their investment strategy by waiting until the end of the 45 days before filing their reports.
However, tracking which stocks the top investors are buying is still educational and can reveal trends from which fund managers and retail investors can benefit.
