See Which Of The Latest 13F Filers Holds Amazon.com
Joel Kornblau - Monday, August 19, 10:08 AM

At Holdings Channel, we have reviewed the latest batch of the 145 most recent 13F filings for the 06/30/2019 reporting period, and noticed that Amazon.com Inc (AMZN) was held by 60 of these funds. When hedge fund managers appear to be thinking alike, we find it is a good idea to take a closer look.

Before we proceed, it is important to point out that 13F filings do not tell the whole story, because these funds are only required to disclose their long positions with the SEC, but are not required to disclose their short positions. A fund making a bearish bet against a stock by shorting calls, for example, might also be long some amount of stock as they trade around their overall bearish position. This long component could show up in a 13F filing and everyone might assume the fund is bullish, but this tells only part of the story because the bearish/short side of the position is not seen.

Having given that caveat, we believe that looking at groups of 13F filings can be revealing, especially when comparing one holding period to another. Below, let's take a look at the change in AMZN positions, for this latest batch of 13F filers:

In terms of shares owned, we count 23 of the above funds having increased existing AMZN positions from 03/31/2019 to 06/30/2019, with 24 having decreased their positions and 5 new positions. Worth noting is that Acorn Wealth Advisors LLC, and One Wealth Advisors LLC, included in this recent batch of 13F filers, exited AMZN common stock as of 06/30/2019.

Looking beyond these particular funds in this one batch of most recent filers, we tallied up the AMZN share count in the aggregate among all of the funds which held AMZN at the 06/30/2019 reporting period (out of the 4,793 we looked at in total). We then compared that number to the sum total of AMZN shares those same funds held back at the 03/31/2019 period, to see how the aggregate share count held by hedge funds has moved for AMZN. We found that between these two periods, funds increased their holdings by 5,632,238 shares in the aggregate, from 258,435,101 up to 264,067,339 for a share count increase of approximately 2.18%. The overall top three funds holding AMZN on 06/30/2019 were:

»FundShares of AMZN Held
1.Vanguard Group Inc. 31,312,832
2.BlackRock Inc. 26,082,028
3.FMR LLC 16,715,040

We'll keep following the latest 13F filings by hedge fund managers and bring you interesting stories derived from a look at the aggregate information across groups of managers between filing periods. While looking at individual 13F filings can sometimes be misleading due to the long-only nature of the information, the sum total across groups of funds from one reporting period to another can be a lot more revealing and relevant, providing interesting stock ideas that merit further research, like Amazon.com Inc (AMZN).
