Ken Fisher’s Biggest Dividend Stock Buys And His Latest Portfolio

Ken Fisher’s stock purchases and his portfolio overview originally published at long-term-investments.blogspot.com. I often look at the activities of the big players because some of them know what’s hot on the market. One investment guru I would like to introduce here today is Ken Fisher.

Fisher has assets of around $38 billion under management and he owns around 500 stocks of which 45 were completely new in his portfolio.


Because of the huge number of assets he own, the transaction list is very long and none of his deals had a really huge influence to his portfolio. The biggest move on the long side was the purchase of the UBS Fisher ETN “UBS Fisher Enhanced Big Cap Growth ETN”.


From his 20 biggest long transactions pay 12 a dividend.


Ken Fisher is one of the most diversified guy's I’ve ever seen. The biggest portfolio position has a share of 2.7 percent and is reasonable to the Barclays ETN FI Enhanced Global High Yield ETN. Fisher owns 3 exchange traded funds in his top 20 positions with a total weighting of around 7.1 percent.


Beside ETFs, Fisher loves the Technology sector and bets on financial services stocks. All three categories represent around 47.4 percent of his assets.


Fisher reduced technology, energy and basic material stocks within the recent quarter. On the other side, he increased stocks from the financial services sector, healthcare and defensive consumer goods sector.


Here are the best yielding stock buys from Ken Fisher:
