Given all the asset classes he can choose from, and influence his opinion has on the global capital markets, George Soros is still active in investing in stocks. GuruFocus shows that he has a portfolio of $3.31 billion distributed among 823 stocks as of June 30, 2010, 239 of them are new positions. Diversified as he is, it is hard to imagine why he wants to take a significant position in any stock. Concentration investing is not his couple of tea.
But concentration is exactly what he is doing with a number of stocks (see the list here). Not only that, Soros has been accumulating shares of these stocks since the end of 2Q10.
