Michael Dell's Most Heavily Weighted Stocks

Guru Michael Dell ( Trades , Portfolio ) of MSD Capital only has seven companies in his portfolio, so identifying his most heavily weighted stocks isn't difficult. The hard part is deciding where to draw the line.

In the case of Dell's portfolio, it seems prudent to draw the line below the stocks with double-digit weightings. That leaves four of the holdings in his portfolios - Asbury Automotive Group Inc. ( NYSE:ABG ), Esterline Technologies ( ESL ), DineEquity Inc. ( DIN ) and PVH Corp. ( PVH ) - as his most heavily weighted.

Asbury Automotive Group Inc.

Asbury Automotive Group, an Atlanta-based operator of automobile dealerships across the U.S., is Dell's most heavily weighted stock. Dell owns 2,225,596 shares valued at $201.68 million with a weighting of 24.89%.
