Impressive results

His personal hedge fund uses value investment tools to ferret out securities available for less than their intrinsic value

For Michael Dell (Trades, Portfolio), making money seemed the least of his challenges. From his high school days onward, he scored success after success. The biggest of those successes was eliminating the middleman in retail personal computer sales; it not only changed Dell’s life, but the whole PC industry.

He continued to show his mental acuity by forming a family office hedge fund to manage the money he was making, and to allow the fund managers to run the fund without his micro-management.

This is how the ultra-successful founder of the Dell Computer Corp. put his wealth

Guru's top holdings are Asbury Automotive Group, Esterline Technologies, DineEquity and PVH Corp.

Guru Michael Dell (Trades, Portfolio) of MSD Capital only has seven companies in his portfolio, so identifying his most heavily weighted stocks isn’t difficult. The hard part is deciding where to draw the line.

In the case of Dell’s portfolio, it seems prudent to draw the line below the stocks with double-digit weightings. That leaves four of the holdings in his portfolios – Asbury Automotive Group Inc. (ABG), Esterline Technologies (ESL), DineEquity Inc. (DIN) and PVH Corp. (PVH)as his most heavily weighted.
