Soros Fund Management, founded by legendary investor George Soros, just disclosed its holdings of publicly traded companies in the fourth quarter.

By looking at its public disclosures, mandated by the Securities and Exchange Commission, investors can enjoy a window into its activities during the fourth quarter. Soros’ positions may have changed after the end of the quarter.

Soros exited holdings of some big tech names in the fourth quarter, including Microsoft, Apple, and Alibaba, as the tech sector got hit particularly hard during the market selloff at the end of last year.

The firm also trimmed its stakes in entertainment-related investments, dumping shares of American gaming company Caesars Entertainment and Vici Properties, a real estate investment trust specializing in casino properties.

Meanwhile, Soros poured money into passive investments. The firm initiated positions in iShares Russell 1000 exchange-traded fund and the Financial Select Sector SPDR Fund in the fourth quarter.

The list below, based on Bloomberg data, shows the Soros’ biggest investments as of December 31, 2018, in ascending order of the market value of its holdings. The list includes the fund’s position changes disclosed in the most recent 13F regulatory filing.
