Bill Gates’ latest trades were recently revealed via the 13F filing for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Trust.
There’s value to be gleaned from this information. Not only does the Trust manage a portfolio worth over $19 billion, but Bill Gates is a close friend of Warren Buffett, the legendary investor and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, Inc. (BRK.B).
This filing could provide some valuable insight as to where the Trust sees some value and where the best investments might currently lie.
It should be noted that while Bill Gates oversees the Foundation and its investments, Michael Larson is actually the chief investment officer.
Now, it might not make sense to piggyback on these trades and simply buy and/or sell whatever the Trust has because these filings are generally released 45 days after the most recent quarter ended, but it would appear to be an intelligent move to investigate exactly where a large, successful fund is putting new capital to work.
