Wall Street Whale Watching: 13F Season

Quarterly filings from the big fund managers are rolling out. Among them, the latest from Warren Buffett.

What do our pros find noteworthy?


Warren Buffett: Added to his stake in Dollar General and increased stake in Mastercard by 88%.

Guy Adami thinks Dollar General pulled back enough to dip a toe but adds, “I don’t love getting long, simply because of a whale.”

Pete Najarian is more bullish. “Dollar Tree, Family Dollar, Dollar General are all very attractive,” he says.



--------

John Paulson: Cut his BofA stake in half and he reduced his position in Citi.

Guy Adami sees the move as simply a money manager getting out of a bad position.

Pete Najarian adds that there’s a lot of activity in BofA options, but he thinks it’s largely because of the levels at which BofA is trading.

--------

David Einhorn: Liquidated Yahoo stake, showed new stake in Aeropostale and raised stakes in Apple, Best Buy, Microsoft.

Tim Seymour reminds investors that although David Einhorn is a shrewd investor all these positions were as of the close of last quarter which was June 30th. “The world has changed since then.”

--------

Steve Cohen: Added call options in the gold ETF and doubled stake in Apple.
