5. Walmart Inc (NYSE:WMT)
Walmart ranks 5th in the list of Bill Gates’ most recent investments. One of the biggest hedge funds having stakes in the company is Martin Taylor’s Crake Asset Management which had $32 billion invested in the stock at the end of December. Shares in WMT are up 18% in the last twelve months. The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a rise in the company’s digital sales as enforced lockdown forced customers to stay home and online shopping was a convenience. WMT accounts for 7.48% of the overall portfolio of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Trust.
