George Soros Lessens His Positions on U.S. Stocks

Wouldn’t it be great to look into the portfolio of some of the largest investors in the United States of America. If a person knew what T. Boone Pickens, Warren Buffett, George Soros, the Koch brothers were holding it might be easy to become rich. There is a little known Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) filing, 13F, required by law to be filled within 45 days of the end of each fiscal quarter. Any fund manager with more than $100 million in assets must file four times each year. These filings become public knowledge and can be studied by anyone who accesses the information through the SEC.

In the latest filing the Soros Fund lightened its load of U.S. investments by 37 percent or $3.5 billion. The Soros Fund also revealed that its position is bearish on the Standard & Poor’s 500. George Soros and others have been warning about another possible economic collapse similar to 2007-2008.

Many investors blindly follow the conventional wisdom and take positions in popular stocks. These popular positions are talked about intensely on financial news programs on http://www.cnbc.com/2016/05/17/soros-fund-management-outlines-new-allocations.html and the effect is to momentarily raise the value, while at the same time the savvy investor is ready to close out his position whenever the demand is highest. By observing the position movements of large hedge fund managers made public by 13F filings, the savvy small investor can get an idea of the sentiment of the market which can greatly aid him in his investment strategy.
 George Soros has written more than a dozen books on global economies and his lectures are also available. It must be remembered that when news is being issued about the worth of a particular stock, it may be a false flag event, and the news was made to benefit an investor or an officer of the company who wishes to divest himself of that particular holding. In a market with a huge number of participants it is much harder to move the market in any direction up or down, as it was during the early age of Wall Street. But the principals of market action remain the same.

George Soros has made his fortune. He spends his valuable time working on and for his foundation and traveling the world lecturing at numerous economic summits. His warnings may be too late for many. Read the full article here: http://www.investopedia.com/university/greatest/georgesoros.asp
