See Which Of The Latest 13F Filers Holds Oracle

Holdings Channel

Before we proceed, it is important to point out that 13F filings do not tell the whole story, because these funds are only required to disclose their long positions with the SEC, but are not required to disclose their short positions. A fund making a bearish bet against a stock by shorting calls, for example, might also be long some amount of stock as they trade around their overall bearish position. This long component could show up in a 13F filing and everyone might assume the fund is bullish, but this tells only part of the story because the bearish/short side of the position is not seen.

Having given that caveat, we believe that looking at groups of 13F filings can be revealing, especially when comparing one holding period to another. Below, let's take a look at the change in ORCL positions, for this latest batch of 13F filers:

In terms of shares owned, we count 2 of the above funds having increased existing ORCL positions from 03/31/2020 to 06/30/2020, with 8 having decreased their positions and 1 new position.

Looking beyond these particular funds in this one batch of most recent filers, we tallied up the ORCL share count in the aggregate among all of the funds which held ORCL at the 06/30/2020 reporting period (out of the 1,014 we looked at in total). We then compared that number to the sum total of ORCL shares those same funds held back at the 03/31/2020 period, to see how the aggregate share count held by hedge funds has moved for ORCL. We found that between these two periods, funds increased their holdings by 435,613 shares in the aggregate, from 61,870,716 up to 62,306,329 for a share count increase of approximately 0.70%. The overall top three funds holding ORCL on 06/30/2020 were:

We'll keep following the latest 13F filings by hedge fund managers and bring you interesting stories derived from a look at the aggregate information across groups of managers between filing periods. While looking at individual 13F filings can sometimes be misleading due to the long-only nature of the information, the sum total across groups of funds from one reporting period to another can be a lot more revealing and relevant, providing interesting stock ideas that merit further research, like Oracle Corp (Symbol: ORCL).
