Wall Street’s Elite Place Their Bets

Wealth Whisperer Team

The world of hedge funds is notoriously shrouded in secrecy.


We’re often left guessing at the strategies and holdings of these elusive investment giants. Many of Wall Street’s largest players have political ties and access to insiders that give them an unfair advantage.

However, there is one weapon we wield against the globalist elites. It is called a 13F filing, and it’s a game-changer for investors looking to get an inside edge on the financial markets.

In contrast to evading taxes through offshore accounts, hedge funds are required to file this document that reveals their investments every quarter. These greedy capitalists will make the most of any situation where they can grow their wealth and power.


The 2008 Financial Crisis showed us that they’re willing to destroy everyone and anyone who got in their way.

But by analyzing these filings, you can gain access to the highly-guarded secrets of the world’s most influential investors.

The insights are nothing short of remarkable, and can give investors an incredible edge. Fortunately, we’ve already done the heavy lifting for you, uncovering the most compelling trades from Wall Street’s elite.

Buffett Ignores His Advice


One of Warren Buffett’s most famous quotes is: If you aren’t willing to own a stock for 10 years, don’t even think about owning it for 10 minutes. 

Buffett shocked investors after his 13F filing was disclosed.

You see, in Q3 2022, Berkshire Hathaway slapped on a new position in Taiwan Semiconductor (NYSE: TSM), acquiring more than 60 million shares.

TSM manufactures semiconductors and supplies the likes of Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL), Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ: AMD) and NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ: NVDIA). The company is extremely profitable, with a net income margin of 44.9%, and pays an annual dividend of $1.77.

The only problem is that it’s close to China, which has threatened to invade Taiwan in the past.


The other day, China took a break from flying spy balloons to impose sanctions on Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) and Raytheon (NYSE: RTX) for supplying weapons to Taiwan.

Buffett may know something, because his latest 13F filing shows he sold 51.7 million shares in TSM, leaving his firm with just 8.3 million shares.

This a very strange move from Buffett, who preaches long-term investing. It was one of his top 10 holdings, but he managed to only hold it for two quarters.

The Big Short Takes Some Longs

Michael Burry’s story was popularized in the book “The Big Short” by Michael Lewis. He was one of the first investors to recognize the underlying weakness in the subprime mortgage market in 2008. He placed massive bets on its collapse and made a nine-figure fortune off it.

He scored big again when he invested in GameStop (NYSE: GME) in 2019, before the Reddit-fueled trading frenzy. His latest 13F shows he took a new 50,000 share position in Alibaba (NYSE: BABA) and 75,000 shares of JD.com (NASDAQ: JD).


Burry likes buying stocks typically 10 to 15% above the 52-week lows. He’s more of a position trader than an investor, and makes several changes to his portfolio throughout the year.

Liberal Billionaire Makes Unusual Crypto Bet

You can find George Soros dabbling in the market when he’s not busy buying politicians and influencing media companies with his money.

The globalist’s latest 13F filing shows an investment of $8,984,659 in convertible notes of Marathon Digital (NASDAQ: MARA), a bitcoin mining company.

But why?

Marathon Digital’s profit margin is -179.5%, and its operating margin is -222.5%.

The 92-year-old clearly didn’t buy because he likes the fundamentals.

His firm also has a $200 million stake in MicroStrategy (NASDAQ: MSTR), a company known for its large bitcoin holdings.

In September 2010, Soros called gold the “ultimate bubble” when it was trading at $1,275.

Yet he sees no problem investing in crypto, an industry littered with scam artists and charlatans.

By the way, he was dead wrong about gold.

It has surged by more than 44% since his “ultimate bubble” call.

Wall Street’s Most Powerful Man Bets On Troubled Bank

Ken Griffin owns a $238 million apartment at 220 Central Park West, a $120 million London mansion near Buckingham Palace, the most expensive apartment in Chicago history, and several luxurious vacation homes.

He has one of the most impressive art collections in the world and paid $43.2 million for a first-edition copy of the U.S. Constitution.

His firm, Citadel, seemingly prints money.

While most investors in 2022 got their butts handed to them, Ken’s firm racked up gains of 32%, returning a record $16 billion in profits.

His latest 13F filing shows his firm took a 5.5% in crypto bank Silvergate Capital Corporation (SI). In November 2021, SI was trading as high as $239 per share.

You can pick up shares for under twenty bucks.

Silvergate provides payments, lending and funding solutions to digital currency companies and investors.

However, the company is facing heavy scrutiny for its relationship with disgraced crypto-broker FTX and a slew of crypto firms that went belly up in 2021-22.

But given Ken’s pristine track record, it’s hard to imagine him being wrong on this play.

There’s Just One Problem

Sifting through 13F reports can be an effective tool for generating new trade ideas. However, hedge funds have 90 days to disclose their positions.

While we know they made these trades in Q4 2022, we don’t know if they’re still holding them or have made changes.

You’ll have to look elsewhere if you need greater transparency, reliable insight and compelling current recommendations.

For example, Bryan Perry laid out a beautiful trade plan for his Breakout Options Alert subscribers.

It’s a new pick in an automaker that he believes can soar from here.

It has nothing to do with the following:

  • Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA)
  • Ford (NYSE: F)
  • General Motors (NYSE: GM)
  • Rivian (NASDAQ: RIVN)

Jim Woods also has a brand new options play…

And like Bryan’s pick, it has ties to the auto industry.

But Jim is focused more on the tech side of it. Jim gave Bullseye Stock Trader subscribers two ways to play it, dishing out trade plans for stock and options traders.

After knocking down seven triple-digit-percentage winners in the last three months, Mark Skousen’s Home Run Trader service just released a new recommendation.

Mark has his eyes on a contrarian energy play that he believes has explosive upside from here.

Bottom Line

13F reports can give average investors a peek into the world’s largest hedge fund portfolios. However, they have limitations. If you want timely advice to act upon, consider checking out one of Jim’s, Bryan’s, or Mark’s services.
