At Holdings Channel, we have reviewed the latest batch of the 31 most recent 13F filings for the 09/30/2022 reporting period, and noticed that Southern Company (Symbol: SO) was held by 12 of these funds. When hedge fund managers appear to be thinking alike, we find it is a good idea to take a closer look.

Before we proceed, it is important to point out that 13F filings do not tell the whole story, because these funds are only required to disclose their long positions with the SEC, but are not required to disclose their short positions. A fund making a bearish bet against a stock by shorting calls, for example, might also be long some amount of stock as they trade around their overall bearish position. This long component could show up in a 13F filing and everyone might assume the fund is bullish, but this tells only part of the story because the bearish/short side of the position is not seen.

Having given that caveat, we believe that looking at groups of 13F filings can be revealing, especially when comparing one holding period to another. Below, let’s take a look at the change in SO positions, for this latest batch of 13F filers:

Fund New Position? Change In Share Count Change In Market Value ($ in 1000’s)
Westpac Banking Corp Existing +5,504 +$56
USS Investment Management Ltd Existing 78,404 $6,405
Mayfair Advisory Group LLC Existing +295 $89
Nicollet Investment Management Inc. Existing UNCH $38
Vicus Capital Existing +110 $4
Old North State Trust LLC Existing +22,538 +$1,532
North Star Asset Management Inc. Existing UNCH $10
Congress Asset Management Co. MA Existing 2,000 $182
Allianz Asset Management GmbH Existing 12,909 $2,677
Atlas Capital Advisors LLC Existing 350 $25
Edgemoor Investment Advisors Inc. Existing +195 $308
9258 Wealth Management LLC Existing +23 $12
Aggregate Change: 64,998 $8,162

In terms of shares owned, we count 6 of the above funds having increased existing SO positions from 06/30/2022 to 09/30/2022, with 4 having decreased their positions.

Looking beyond these particular funds in this one batch of most recent filers, we tallied up the SO share count in the aggregate among all of the funds which held SO at the 09/30/2022 reporting period (out of the 2,912 we looked at in total). We then compared that number to the sum total of SO shares those same funds held back at the 06/30/2022 period, to see how the aggregate share count held by hedge funds has moved for SO. We found that between these two periods, funds increased their holdings by 2,214,309 shares in the aggregate, from 52,803,645 up to 55,017,954 for a share count increase of approximately 4.19%. The overall top three funds holding SO on 09/30/2022 were:

We’ll keep following the latest 13F filings by hedge fund managers and bring you interesting stories derived from a look at the aggregate information across groups of managers between filing periods. While looking at individual 13F filings can sometimes be misleading due to the long-only nature of the information, the sum total across groups of funds from one reporting period to another can be a lot more revealing and relevant, providing interesting stock ideas that merit further research, like Southern Company (Symbol: SO).
