Bill Ackman’s Highest Yielding Dividend Stock Bets And His Complete Portfolio

Bill Ackman’s latest portfolio transactions and his biggest positions originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". Some of you might know Bill Ackman because of the phone battle against Carl Icahn on CNBC. He is an activist with around USD 10 billion in assets under management. In his management company “Pershing Square Capital” he has only 10 stock holdings.

As an activist, Ackman tries to increase pressure on the management of a company in order to implement own visions of the company’s future. Nearly half of his positions have voting rights over 10 percent.

His main investment focus is on defensive stocks from the consumer and industrial sector. Around 70 percent of his exposure is related to these two sectors.

Below is a small list of Bill Ackman’s latest Portfolio transactions. He is a lazy guy. Last quarter, he bought only one stock and he needed more than a year to complete his latest 20 transactions.

From his 20 latest transactions are 12 unique positions of which 10 pay dividends. Dividend payments are not in focus of Ackman’s investment strategy. Only one company yields above the 3 percent mark.

  1. Ackman's picks seem boring at best and just plain bad at worst. JCPenney was one of the worst performers last year and this year.
