Glenn Greenberg of Brave Warrior Capital, Inc. reported his Q4 portfolio. As of 12/31/2010, Brave Warrior Capital, Inc. owns 11 stocks with a total value of $1.1 billion. These are the details of the buys and sells.

Glenn Greenberg runs a very concentrated portfolio. He was a partner a hedge fund Chieftain Management. Then he split with his partner and started his own firm Brave Warrior Capital.

Greenberg was an English major in college and never contemplated going into investing. He ended up going to Columbia business school with no real career objective. He went to work for J.P. Morgan after b-school. A light bulb went off for Greenberg when he was asked to analyze a company that owned land with redwoods growing on it. He made some enquiries and discovered that the land was worth three times the price at which the company was trading. That shaped his thinking because he learned that there are situations out there where you don’t need to be a genius to figure them out.
