Francis has sold off about 80% of his BAC warrants, doubled down on DELL, added MBIA and eliminated Office Depot.  Cheers!

Interesting.  In his US fund, he still owns quite a few BAC warrants.  Sanj, any thoughts as to why the difference?

I posted this on the BAC thread, but it might be worth repeating here.

 

Weighting in a fund is based on cost. To illustrate; for a fund of $100 I can put $10 into a stock, which with a share price of $1 means I can buy 10 shares for my fund. If the share tanks to 50 cents then I cannot add to my position. However, what I can do is sell my shares and buy back the position 30 days later, thereby establishing a new cost base, and in this case I can now buy 20 shares.

 

So it if he is selling only in one place and not the other and his cost base is materially higher in the place he is selling then it is a safe bet to assume, that is what is happening. So, selling to buy more.
