According to current portfolio statistics, a Premium feature of GuruFocus, five stocks in

Daniel Loeb (Trades, Portfolio)’s 13F equity portfolio with high performance during the first quarter were CF Industries Holdings Inc. (CF, Financial), EQT Corp. (EQT, Financial), Crown Holdings Inc. (CCK, Financial), Zendesk Inc. (ZEN, Financial) and Archaea Energy Inc. (LFG, Financial).


In 1995, Loeb founded Third Point, a New York-based firm that follows an event-driven investing approach. The firm seeks out-of-favor stocks and pushes management for changes to unlock shareholder value.


As of December 2021, the firm’s $14.32 billion 13F equity portfolio contains 91 stocks with a quarterly turnover ratio of 22%. Investors must be aware that 13F reports do not give a complete picture of a guru’s holdings: While the reports only include U.S. holdings and American depository receipts, they can still provide valuable information. Further, the reports only consider trades and holdings as of the latest portfolio filing date and thus, do not reflect trades made after the filing date.

The top three sectors in terms of weight are technology, consumer cyclical and health care, representing 26.16%, 17.06% and 16.55% of the equity portfolio.


CF Industries Holdings

Third Point owns 1,244,477 shares of CF Industries Holdings (

The Deerfield, Illinois-based nitrogen fertilizer manufacturer has a GuruFocus profitability rank of 9 based on several positive investing signs, which include a high Piotroski F-score of 8, a three-year revenue growth rate that outperforms more than 83% of global competitors, and an operating margin that has increased approximately 21% per year on average over the past five years.


Other gurus with holdings in CF Industries include the

T Rowe Price Equity Income Fund (Trades, Portfolio) and Ken Fisher (Trades, Portfolio)’s Fisher Investments.



Loeb's firm owns 4.975 million shares of EQT Corp. (

EQT, Financial), giving the position 0.76% of equity portfolio space.
