Top 10 Companies Held By Mutual Funds

Daniel Cross Jun 03, 2016




Mutual Fund Mainstays


Interestingly, Indian companies are some of the most common stocks held by mutual funds right now. A decade ago, China was the biggest foreign market for fund ownership but as India’s economic growth outpaces China’s, more mutual funds are looking to the new emerging market.

Here we list some of the most common stocks found in equity mutual fund portfolios:

  1. Alphabet (GOOG) – Google’s parent company dominates our list as the most popular stock owned by mutual funds.
  2. Amazon (AMZN) – As one of the FANG stocks, Amazon is ubiquitous in the mutual fund industry.
  3. Facebook (FB) – Most equity funds own at least some of Facebook’s stock.
  4. Netflix (NFLX) – Rounding out the FANG stocks with Netflix, this stock is becoming more common in the mutual fund industry.
  5. HDFC Bank (HDB) – 8 out of 10 of the most popular equity mutual funds list this Indian bank among their top holdings.
  6. Tata Motors (TTM)
  7. JP Morgan Chase (JPM)
  8. MasterCard (MA)
  9. Gilead Sciences (GILD)
  10. Actavis (ACT)

An analysis by Goldman Sachs of the most popular stocks held by a selection of more than 700 mutual funds revealed these stocks as the most common. How the market performs from this point on will determine if any of these stocks fall out of favor and what stocks will replace them.
