Michael Burry from the Big Short reveals his stock picks for the first time since 2016

The Big Short Michael Burry



Michael Burry has become quite popular since the movie The Big Short, where  a character was dedicated to the hedge fund manager. In 2016, Burry 's Scion Asset Management has assets worth $ 35 million, which relieves him of the obligation to announce the contents of his portfolio to the SEC. Back then the fund has investments mainly in Coty Inc. (NYSE: COTY).

Today, for the first time since 2016, Burry is again obliged to publicly announce the contents of the portfolio, as the fund currently manages $ 105 million, 5 million above the limit, which obliges fund managers to declare the shares they have purchased.

At the moment, Michael Burry's portfolio is far more diversified than in 2016, with 15 new shares and Google (NASDAQ: GOOGL), which is located there previously. Investments are targeted at 9 different sectors, which implies a better positioning to the market risks.

Here's Top 5 of the new shares in the portfolio that Burry expects to perform better than the market:

1. CorePoint Lodging Inc. (NYSE:CPLG)

– Value of Holding (as of December 31, 2018): $11.09 million

2. The Walt Disney Company (NYSE:DIS)

– Value of Holding (as of December 31, 2018): $8.77 million

3. Tailored Brands, Inc. (NYSE:TLRD)

4. Cleveland-Cliffs Inc. (NYSE:CLF)
