George Soros Doubling Down on Apple Inc. (AAPL), Bullish on Big Banks: Citigroup Inc. (C), JPMorgan Chase & Co (JPM)

Adecoagro going strong

We’ve already discussed Adecoagro SA (NYSE:AGRO) in our analysis of George Soros’s best small-cap stock picks (which may be the best way to “monkey” hedge funds), and it’s worth noting that the agricultural holding company is still a top five pick in his portfolio. High-value arable land is the key driving force behind this stock, and Adecoagro has plenty of it. The company owns more than three-dozen properties in Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina, where farmland prices have followed a favorable trend similar to price levels in the U.S.

Trading at parity with their book value, shares of Adecoagro are obviously cheap at the moment, which is a trait that most of Soros’s high-conviction investments share. It’s easy to understand why the billionaire hedge fund manager is so bullish.
