‘Big Short’ Michael Burry stock portfolio update

‘Big Short’ Michael Burry stock portfolio update

This week, Finbold reported on legendary investor Michael Burry‘s intriguing $2 million investment in iHeartMedia (NASDAQ: IHRT), a media company currently grappling with a tumultuous stock performance, having shed over 45% of its value in 2023. 

Burry’s decision raised eyebrows among investors, though it’s not the only controversial move in his portfolio. 

Meanwhile, recent disclosures from the Michael Burry Stock Tracker – an X (Twitter) account that tracks Burry’s investments – revealed a substantial $4 million stake in Geo Group (NYSE: GEO), a company specializing in investments related to private prisons and mental health facilities worldwide, adding another layer of intrigue to his investment choices.

Interestingly, GEO saw a significant price spike on September 11, when Citron Research published a bullish report on the company. 

“The Geo Group is poised to benefit from the current migration challenges, given its leadership in the Alternative to Detention sector.”

– Citron said.

However, the rally was short-lived, as shares retraced their recent gains, dropping over 5% since reaching this week’s high of $7.56 apiece. 

Burry’s position in GEO

According to Michael Burry Stock Tracker, the ‘Big Short’ investor bought an additional 200,000 shares of GEO, the most recent 13-F filings showed.

As of then, his total position in Geo Group is over 600,000 shares, with an overall value of around $4.2 million. 

The widely-followed hedge fund manager first acquired GEO in Q4 2020. However, the stock witnessed a sluggish performance in 2023, declining more than 33% since January 1.

Burry’s other portfolio holdings

While Burry’s $4 million investment in GEO seems significant, it takes only 2% of Autopilot’s Burry Tracker portfolio, which allows users to copy-trade his investments. 

Meanwhile, Burry Tracker’s largest positions at the moment include ProShares Short S&P 500 (NYSE Arca: SH) at 33% and ProShares Short QQQ (NYSE Arca: PSQ) at 27%. The two refer to exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that are designed for investors who want to profit from, or protect against, declines in the respective benchmark indexes without actually short-selling individual stocks.

At the same time, 10% of the portfolio is allocated to Expedia Group (NASDAQ: EXPE) and Charter Communications (NASDAQ: CHTR), at 5% each. Other noteworthy positions include Cigna Corp. (NYSE: CI), Vital Energy (NYSE: VTLE), and CVS Health Group (NYSE: CVS), among others.
