As we continue to track 13F filings, we came across Realm Partners’. This hedge fund, managed by Robert Millard (who had previously held senior positions at Lehman Brothers and Barclays Bank) since 2009, disclosed an equity portfolio with a market value of approximately $239 million, as of June 30 2014. Its second quarter equity portfolio was mainly divided between four sectors: consumer staples stocks (31%), consumer discretionary stocks (24%), utilities and telecommunications (20%), and healthcare stocks (18%). In this article we will take a look at his top 3 stock picks in order to elucidate if any of them deserve further research.

Despite a 37% reduction in Realm Partners’ position, TIM Participacoes SA (ADR) (NYSE:TSU) stands as the fund’s largest long equity position. Mr. Millard’s fund disclosed ownership of 422,400 shares of TIM Participacoes SA (ADR) (NYSE:TSU), worth approximately $12.2 million.

The stock gained 12.35% over the second quarter of 2014, reaching a 52-week high of $30.52 per share in late-June. This could have certainly motivated Realm Partners to sell some of its stock, reaping a considerable profit from it.

The first one started a position – with 5.26 million shares- in the company in the first quarter of 2014; the second one, doubled its stake between January and March, and last disclosed ownership of 2.72 million shares.
