Billionaire Chris Hohn’s Top Picks: Time Warner Cable Inc (TWC), Moody’s Corporation (MCO), Ambac Financial Group, Inc. (AMBC)

Chris Hohn’s Childrens Investment Fund Management has filed its 13F with the SEC for the period ending of March 31. The investment firm is known to donate a certain percentage of its profits to causes supporting the welfare of children in various developing countries, which is from where its name derives. Childrens Investment Fund Management has a concentrated portfolio with only four stocks, which have a market value of $2.75 billion. Of those, the firm’s three primary investments are in Time Warner Cable Inc (NYSE:TWC), Moody’s Corporation (NYSE:MCO), and Ambac Financial Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMBC).

Time Warner Cable Inc (NYSE:TWC) is the largest stock investment of Hohn, who owns 15.02 million shares of the TV services provider, with a market value of $2.25 billion. The holding accounts for a grand 81.71% of the overall equity portfolio of the investment manager. The shares of Time Warner Cable Inc (NYSE:TWC) have grown 1.84% year-to-date, lifting its market cap to $44.20 billion. The big news surrounding the company is the decision by Comcast Corporation (NASDAQ:CMCSA) to abandon its attempt to acquire Time Warner Cable Inc (NYSE:TWC) for $45 billion. According to experts, regulatory approval was a primary concern, which ultimately lead to the end of the deal. In separate news concerning Time Warner Cable, Charter Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ:CHTR) is in talks with banks to offer a new acquisition bid of its own to acquire the cable company. Time Warner rejected a bid of $132.50 per share from Charter in January 2014 and demanded $160, with $100 of that sum in cash. Hohn holds the largest investment in Time Warner Cable among the funds we track followed by John Paulson‘s Paulson & Co. He also, interestingly enough, opened a small position in Charter Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ:CHTR) during the first quarter, the only one of his four positions we will not otherwise cover in this article.

Moving on, Moody’s Corporation (NYSE:MCO) comes at number two in the equity portfolio of Childrens Investment Fund Management. The firm owns 4.37 million shares of the credit ratings firm, with a market value of $453.28 million. The shares of Moody’s Corporation (NYSE:MCO) have grown 13.16% year-to-date and the company has current a market cap of $22.24 billion.

Moody’s Corporation reported net revenue of $865.6 million along with $1.11 earnings per share for the reporting period. The market was expecting quarterly revenue of $832.49 million along with earnings per share of $1.05.
