Billionaire investor George Soros reported his 4th quarter portfolio yesterday and here are a few key observations.
Soros initiated holdings in Citigroup Inc. (C) which is now one of his top 5 holdings, with an estimated average price purchase of $4.00. Soros increased his holdings in Bank Of America Corp. (BAC) by over 24% and added to his holdings in Ford Motor Company (F) by over 48%.
It appears the golden place to be is, well, gold.
Almost 10% of Soros portfolio is in Spider Gold Shares (GLD). Soros added to his holdings by over 150% in GLD and increased his holdings in Yamana Gold (AUY) by over 240%. Additionally, over 30% of Soros portfolio is in the energy, oil and gas sector.
So who else is buying gold?
John Paulson, the investor who made billions by pegging the housing bust and credit crisis, invested $1.3 billion for an 11% stake of AngloGold (adding to his gold position with a significant stake in Kinross Gold). Hedge fund manager David Einhorn (the gentleman who predicted the collapse of Lehman Brothers), recently said he bought gold - for the first time.
What does this means for the Average Joe?
Take a look at penny stock companies like Affinity Gold Corp /quotes/comstock/11k!afyg (AFYG 1.80, -0.08, -4.26%) . Less than a month ago AFYG was sitting at $1.50 per share. We've watched this golden boy steadily rise with the release of their 43-101 technical report and other great news. It closed last Friday at over $1.88. That's a golden ROI story - a 25% increase in your money.
