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.

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.
