Sabal Capital Management Was Right to Buy More Shares of GameStop Corp. (GME), Time Warner Inc (TWX) and Other Companies

Sabal Capital Management is a fund led by William Charters and Mario Marcon, which revealed an equity portfolio worth $43.47 million in its 13F filing for the end of June. Even though Sabal’s portfolio is diversified across sectors, over a half of it was invested in technology stocks. In this article, we are going to discuss some of its top picks.

But before we get to that, we should also mention that Sabal Capital’s equity portfolio returned 18.37% in the third quarter, based on our analysis of its holdings in companies worth at least $1.0 billion. Even though we used the holdings as reported in the 13F filing for the end of June and didn’t take into account the possible changes during the quarter and excluded its other investments that are not revealed in the filing, we still can assess the fund’s investing skills.

With this in mind, let’s take a closer look at Sabal Capital’s positions in GameStop Corp. (NYSE:GME), Time Warner Inc (NYSE:TWX), OSI Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:OSIS), and Nomad Foods Limited (NYSE:NOMD).
