These were the top 10 stocks in billionaire investor David Tepper's hedge fund in the 2nd quarter


Back in May, amid the height of the COVID-19 pandemic and a recovering stock market, billionaire investor David Tepper added to a chorus of concerns that the stock market was overvalued.

In fact, Tepper told CNBC’s Scott Wapner that the market was “maybe the second most overvalued” he’s ever seen, barring the dot-com bubble.

From there, stocks continued to rally, and just hit record all-time highs earlier this week.

Luckily, Tepper’s hedge fund, Appaloosa Management, stayed invested in the market. The fund had a long portfolio valued at $US5.7 billion as of the second quarter, according to a 13F filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission last week.

Here were the top 10 holdings of Appaloosa Management in the second quarter.
