Ken Fisher just reported his third quarter portfolio. He buys UBS AG, Daimler AG, Citigroup Inc, United Technologies, Bank of America, Berkshire Hathaway etc during the third quarter, according to the most recent filings of his investment company, Fisher Asset Management, LLC.

In his latest column on Forbes, Ken Fisher said “I’m bullish on banks, relative to the market.” Why? He wrote:

“Ending so-called QE steepens that spread by definition, since it stops the Federal Reserve’s buying of long-term debt (thus lowering future long-term debt prices and pushing rates higher). As the spread rises, so will bank profitability on new loans, and banks’ eagerness to lend–along with overall loan revenue—will rise in lockstep.”

As of 09/30/2013, Fisher Asset Management, LLC owns 499 stocks with a total value of $40.6 billion. These are the details of the buys and sells that have the impact to portfolio of more than 0.1%.
