How comes his holdings on Guru Focus don't reflect the reduction in C?

Does it take time for Guru Focus to pick up the filings as the article dosn't match the info provided by Guru Focus.

hi Sbhaidani,

this is the current holding of Pabrai. It does show he reduced Citi:

I see the latest picks just showed up as of May 16th and the article is dated May 15th.

What's the normal delay to sync the latest guru pics screen and their portfolios?

I'd also toss in that he swapped the GM common for GM warrants. Take that for what it's worth.

There shouldn't be any. The portfolio and Guru picks pages updated first. Then we may have articles.

For Pabrai, we found that we missed C in Guru Picks page so we refreshed it and fixed the bug that caused it.

Why not just simply subscribe to the rss feeds, this way you dont have to wait. The info is all out there..

Thanks Guru and Wsj - I'll subscribe to RSS feeds.

And Steven, good point on the warrants. Means he's even more bullish on GM.
