Page 1 of 2

In its latest 13F filing, Ray Dalio’s Bridgewater Associates disclosed an equity portfolio for the first quarter of 2015. The portfolio consists of 328 positions, valued at $12.83 billion. The fund made the majority of investments in the financial sector, which represents around 87% of the total portfolio. We’ve already discussed Dalio’s top picks  and in this article, we will take a look at Dalio’s top mining stock picks, which include Goldcorp Inc. (USA) (NYSE:GG), Barrick Gold Corporation (USA) (NYSE:ABX), Newmont Mining Corp (NYSE:NEM), and Rio Tinto plc (ADR) (NYSE:RIO).


Insider Monkey tracks hedge funds and prominent investors to learn about their investment patterns. Our research has shown that a select group of their top stock picks (small-cap picks) delivered superior risk-adjusted returns. According to our research, the 50 most popular large-cap stocks among hedge funds had a monthly alpha of about six basis points per month, while the 15 most popular small-cap stocks delivered a monthly alpha of 80 basis points between 1999 and 2012. This means investors would have generated a double-digit alpha per year simply by imitating the 15 most popular small-cap stocks among hedge funds. Moreover, we have been tracking the performance of these small-cap stocks since the end of August 2012, during which time it’s obtained returns of more than 139% vs. a less than 60% gain for the S&P 500 ETF (SPY) (see the details here).

(USA) (NYSE:GG), in which Dalio held 908,861 shares, worth $16.47 million, as of the end of the first quarter, down by 140,900 shares over the quarter. Goldcorp Inc.
