5 Stocks George Soros Loves Right Now

BALTIMORE (Stockpickr) -- It probably goes without saying that George Soros is a polarizing figure. Ever since throwing his weight around in political circles, the Hungarian transplant has earned his fair share of fans and detractors.

But while his politics are one thing, his success as a hedge fund manager is less up for debate.

Soros earned fame as an investor at the internationally focused Quantum Fund with Jim Rogers, a hedge fund family that's managed by his firm, Soros Fund Management. With SFM at Quantum's helm, the fund has crushed most investors' returns, earning a reported 20% return annually for the last four decades.

But last year, Soros got out of the investment management game, returning money to investors and effectively becoming a $20 billion family office. Despite closing its doors to outside money, Soros Fund Management still has close to a hundred investment professionals on staff, tasked with earning outsized returns for their boss' billions.

Last quarter was an active one for Soros and company - according to the firm's 13F filing for the second quarter of 2012, the firm added 69 new positions to its portfolio, dramatically changing the fund's makeup. But look a bit closer and it's clear that there are some names that Soros Fund Management prefers. While the firm added close to seventy names to its holdings, the money was concentrated on a handful of picks.
