Billionaire Bruce Kovner’s Top Stock Picks for Q2 Include General Motors Company (GM)

Page 1 of 2

General Motors (GM)Billionaire Bruce Kovner’s Caxton Associates recently filed its 13F for the first quarter of 2013, disclosing many of its long equity holdings in U.S. stocks as of the end of March. At Insider Monkey, we maintain a database of 13F filings from hundreds of hedge funds and other notable investors and use the information included in 13Fs to develop investment strategies; for example, the most popular small cap stocks among hedge funds generate an average excess return of 18 percentage points per year. We also like to look at our database shortly after new 13Fs are released and see what billionaire fund managers are doing. Here are our thoughts on Caxton’s five largest holdings from the filing (or compare these picks to those in previous filings):

With some hedge funds selling out of American International Group Inc (NYSE:AIG), that fund lost its place as the most popular stock among hedge funds during Q1 to Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL). See the rest of hedge funds’ ten most common picks. Caxton cut its stake roughly in half, but with 5.2 million shares at the end of March American International Group Inc (NYSE:AIG) remained its largest stock holding. American International Group Inc (NYSE:AIG) trades at a P/B ratio of 0.7, representing a considerable discount to the book value of its equity. Bulls argue that the insurer is temporarily underowned by large institutional investors such as mutual funds, and that in time this will lead to higher demand for the shares.

CAXTON ASSOCIATES LPThe fund reported a position of 7.4 million shares in Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS) at the end of March. The investment bank has had a good year, with its stock price rising 90%, and while this has brought its valuation to quite a high level in terms of trailing earnings analysts are projecting that business will catch up to this optimism with the result being a forward P/E of 10. In addition, the stock is arguably a value play in book terms with a P/B of 0.8. Billionaire Ken Griffin’s Citadel Investment Group had been buying Morgan Stanley in the fourth quarter of 2012 (check out Griffin’s stock picks).
