Ken Fisher is an investment analyst and founder, chairman and CEO of Fisher Investments. In his asset management company he serves around USD37.63 billion. His portfolio invested money in 474 companies; 48 of his stock holdings are completely new.

Fisher has big investments within the technology sector, but financial shares and consumer stocks are also very important for his asset allocation. His latest portfolio transactions show that he strengthen his technology and commodity side. He bought Cisco and Apple for the tech side and BASF, RIO Tinto, Vale and BP for his commodity bets.

Below is a list of his latest and biggest dividend stock buys as well as his most important portfolio positions.
