David Tepper, a billionaire hedge fund manager, has increased his ownership in NVIDIA Corp. In the second quarter, Appaloosa Management added 870,000 shares to their already significant stake in the graphics chipmaker, resulting in a 580% increase.
The latest acquisition brings Appaloosa’s Nvidia holdings to 1.02 million shares, valued at over $450 million and comprising more than 8% of its portfolio. Currently, Nvidia shares are Appaloosa’s largest holding, though it is closely contended by Meta Platforms for the top spot. Is buying this high-flying AI stock a smart move?
Tepper also boosted his existing positions in Alibaba, Amazon, Meta Platforms, and Microsoft.
