George Soros’ Biggest Dividend Stock Buys as of Q1/2013

George Soros is well known within the financial industry. He is a hedge fund manager who serves around $8.56 billion in 207 stocks. Last quarter, he added 74 new companies. It’s very interesting to see how big investors act because if they move, the market changes. The amounts are really big when they decide to place a 1 percent stake.

Today I look at the biggest dividend stock buys from George Soros. George is a real speculator. His 20 biggest changes had an impact to his portfolio between 0.34 percent and 1.3 percent. Only eight of his 20 biggest stock buys pay dividends.

In total, George Soros has a much diversified fund. His biggest position, the SPDR S&P 500 ETF – Put, has a portfolio weighting of 4.8 percent. The second biggest position is the oil and gas company Pioneer Natural Resources with a 3.4 percent share.
