Apple stock regained No. 1 hedge fund holding slot in Q213

“A new report reveals hedge fund investors turned back to Apple for investments in the last quarter, making the Cupertino company the most-held stock among those investors,” Kevin Bostic reports for AppleInsider.

“Citi analyst Tobias Levkovich noted in his most recent report that Google remains the most held stock among mutual funds, a position the search giant took from Apple in March of this year,” Bostic reports. “Apple, though, beat out Google, Priceline, and Qualcomm to take first place among hedge fund holdings.”

Bostic reports, “Apple previously lost the top spot to insurance giant AIG in February, according to some estimates. At the time, Apple fell to third place behind Google. Google subsequently went on to become the top holding in both hedge and mutual funds in March.”

    1. No, they are just pushing it down to pick up more shares prior to September’s and the 4th quarter’s up swing and prior to end of quarter. Why pay full price?

    2. Today’s losses are driven by war trading, specifically, uncertainty around US military involment in Syria. Everything from Facebook to JP Morgan to Dunkin’ Donuts is down a point or three.

  1. If the hedge funds control Apple’s share price so easily then that’s not good. Is there a way Apple can try to attract more mutual fund investors to sort of stabilize Apple’s share price? Apple has already been one of the worst investments for investors who bought last year and yet it’s being pounded even more today on no bad news that I’ve been able to find.

    One would think that with Apple’s fundamentals it would be a bit more stable. However, as many shares as those hedge funds control, all of them dumping in unison will cause a massive share drop no matter what.
