Recent 13F filings

I make changes to my portfolio and those of my clients once a quarter, where I trade out of 2-4 of my ~35 companies, and buy a similar number of new companies.  I have detailed that in this article.

But one thing that I do differently now is where I source ideas.  There are three places:

  1. Articles I read that seem to have good ideas.  I print them out and put them in a folder.
  2. My industry studies.
  3. Scanning the 13Fs of ~75 clever investors.  That’s the new part.

I’m not going to write a lot more commentary this evening.  I’m just going to give you a results dump.  I have already gone through my results and made changes to my clients’ portfolios, save for one stock that is a little illiquid, and will take some time to acquire.

As it is, I want to share the following data with you from my trolling through the 13F filings:

    These charts are great, thanks for sharing them.

    I’m curious – how are you generating them? How did you select your set of investors to follow?

    • Pulled the 13Fs from EDGAR for the last two quarters. Had to create my own database connecting CUSIPs to tickers.

      Developed the list of managers from other manager lists, and then tossed out managers I did not think had talent, and added a few that I thought did have talent. Here’s the list:

    Looking forward to your commentary on the analysis of the 13F filings. Does this not result in simply chasing the herd? Interested to know if/how you adjust for the lag effect of the filings. @hawkingvalue

Disclaimer


David Merkel is an investment professional, and like every investment professional, he makes mistakes. David encourages you to do your own independent "due diligence" on any idea that he talks about, because he could be wrong. Nothing written here, at RealMoney, Wall Street All-Stars, or anywhere else David may write is an invitation to buy or sell any particular security; at most, David is handing out educated guesses as to what the markets may do. David is fond of saying, "The markets always find a new way to make a fool out of you," and so he encourages caution in investing. Risk control wins the game in the long run, not bold moves. Even the best strategies of the past fail, sometimes spectacularly, when you least expect it. David is not immune to that, so please understand that any past success of his will be probably be followed by failures.


Also, though David runs Aleph Investments, LLC, this blog is not a part of that business. This blog exists to educate investors, and give something back. It is not intended as advertisement for Aleph Investments; David is not soliciting business through it. When David, or a client of David's has an interest in a security mentioned, full disclosure will be given, as has been past practice for all that David does on the web. Disclosure is the breakfast of champions.


Additionally, David may occasionally write about accounting, actuarial, insurance, and tax topics, but nothing written here, at RealMoney, or anywhere else is meant to be formal "advice" in those areas. Consult a reputable professional in those areas to get personal, tailored advice that meets the specialized needs that David can have no knowledge of.
