After thumbing through the latest quarterly filings from the world's 50 biggest hedge funds, Factset has published its Q1 Hedge Fund Ownership Report.


"The 50 largest hedge funds increased their equity exposure by over 5% in Q1 2013," said FactSet's Michael Amenta.

Their biggest holdings include popular names in familiar industries like internet search and personal electronic devices.

"While the top 50 hedge fund managers largely increased their exposure to equities, the funds also made significant reductions to their stakes in two successful stocks in 2013: News Corp. (Cl A) and American International Group Inc," added Amenta.

Factset included its list of stocks most widely held by the 50 biggest funds. Google was the most popular with 31 one funds betting on the search engine. At the bottom of their list was Icahn Enterprises, which is basically owned by none other than Carl Icahn.

We ranked this list of stocks by number of holders. We also included the percentage of shares outstanding held by the top 50 funds. And for your information, we also included the top three hedge funds that hold each of these stocks.
