Baupost Group invested nearly half a billion dollars in semiconductor company Qorvo in the first quarter, a regulatory filing shows.
The Boston-based hedge fund firm invested about $US493 million in the first three months of this year, according to the firm’s first-quarter 13-F filing.
The firm also invested $US299 million in Qualcomm, the filing says.
Investors must file 13-F documents within 45 days of each quarter’s end, so Baupost’s positions may have since changed.
The filing also does not give a full picture of an investor’s portfolio, as it only shows its long stock positions, as well as options and convertible bonds.
In other words, what appears to be a long position could be hedged out by other means.
