See Which Of The Latest 13F Filers Holds Visa
Joel Kornblau - Monday, May 18, 10:52 AM

At Holdings Channel, we have reviewed the latest batch of the 154 most recent 13F filings for the 03/31/2020 reporting period, and noticed that Visa Inc (V) was held by 36 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 V positions, for this latest batch of 13F filers:

In terms of shares owned, we count 14 of the above funds having increased existing V positions from 12/31/2019 to 03/31/2020, with 10 having decreased their positions and 9 new positions. Worth noting is that Anson Funds Management LP, Jump Trading LLC, Prana Capital Management LP, and Adalta Capital Management LLC, included in this recent batch of 13F filers, exited V common stock as of 03/31/2020.

Looking beyond these particular funds in this one batch of most recent filers, we tallied up the V share count in the aggregate among all of the funds which held V at the 03/31/2020 reporting period (out of the 5,082 we looked at in total). We then compared that number to the sum total of V shares those same funds held back at the 12/31/2019 period, to see how the aggregate share count held by hedge funds has moved for V. We found that between these two periods, funds reduced their holdings by 46,336,068 shares in the aggregate, from 1,589,309,035 down to 1,542,972,967 for a share count decline of approximately -2.92%. The overall top three funds holding V on 03/31/2020 were:

»FundShares of V Held
1.Vanguard Group Inc. 151,904,018
2.BlackRock Inc. 123,458,786
3.FMR LLC 84,205,149

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 Visa Inc (V).
