Ultimate Stock-Pickers: Top 10 High-Conviction and New-Money Purchases
Top equity-fund managers made few high-conviction purchase in the third quarter, continuing a nine-quarter trend.
By Greggory Warren, CFA | Senior Stock Analyst
When we relaunched the Ultimate Stock-Pickers concept in April 2009, our primary goal was to uncover investment ideas that not only reflected the most recent transactions of some of the top investment managers in the business but were timely enough for investors to get some value from them. By cross-checking the most current valuation work and opinions of Morningstar's cadre of stock analysts against the actions of some of the best equity managers in the industry, we hoped to uncover a few good ideas each quarter. With more than 85% of our Ultimate Stock-Pickers having reported their holdings for the third quarter of 2015, and the market correction during the period affording many of them with an opportunity to put capital to work, we've got a pretty good sense of what stocks they have been buying during the past several months.
