First Eagle Investment Management’s Top Stock Picks This Quarter; Oracle Corp Leads the Pack

Page 1 of 3

First Eagle Investment Management LLC, currently overseen by President and Chief Executive Officer Mehdi Mahmud, is an independent asset management firm that oversees roughly $94 billion in assets under management as of March 31. The 152-year-old company focuses on fundamental, flexible and benchmark-agnostic investing, as well as employs strategies that offer downside protection for investors. The New York-based asset manager had an equity portfolio worth $39.34 billion at the end of the March quarter, down from the $40.00 billion figure registered at the end of the final quarter of 2015. First Eagle Investment Management strongly values its legacy as a patient, thoughtful, long-term investor; therefore, retail investors could benefit from having a look at the firm’s top equity positions and major moves made each quarter. Thus, this article will lay out and discuss the five largest equity positions within First Eagle’s equity portfolio as of the end of March.

At Insider Monkey, we track around 790 hedge funds and institutional investors. Through extensive backtests, we have determined that imitating some of the stocks that these investors are collectively bullish on can help retail investors generate double digits of alpha per year. The key is to focus on the small-cap picks of these funds, which are usually less followed by the broader market and allow for larger price inefficiencies (see more details about our small-cap strategy).
