Stocks in this article: FCMCSACWMTCCEBBYDNDNDAL

NEW YORK ( Stockpickr) -- At Stockpickr, we track the 30 of the top holdings of a variety of high-profile investors, such as Warren Buffett and Carl Icahn. On the heels of the most-recent quarterly 13F filings with the SEC, we're drilling down into these portfolios to offer you the stock picks of some of the world's most famous and followed investors.

One of our most popular professional portfolios is that of George Soros' Soros Fund Management. Keeping in mind that Soros Fund Management conducts hundreds of transactions every quarter -- in the fourth quarter, for example, just positions initiated by Soros clocked in at more than 250 -- we thought we'd single out some of its recent top buys.

What follows is a closer look at eight of the 30 holdings that Stockpickr tracks in its George Soros portfolio. These stocks, including one brand-new buy, saw position increases in the most-recent quarter of 100% or more. They are organized here by increasing position size.

Stock Overview: Ford Motor is a producer of cars and trucks. Its business is divided into two sectors: automotive and financial services. It has a market cap of $53.6 billion, a 1.9 short interest ratio and a P/E of 8.8.
