Bill Gates is the front runner with a $75 billion net worth. Close behind him is Amancio Ortega with $67 billion, and Warren Buffett with a whopping $60.8 billion.
Hedge Fund Managers, George Soros and Carl Icahn fall in at numbers 23 and 43, with $24.5 billion and $17 billion respectively.
You may be asking yourself right now, “What investments are making these guys so rich?”
Or, “What are they doing that I’m not?”
We actually may have an answer for you…
Money Morning’s Executive Editor, Bill Patalon, is, for the first time ever, releasing his research on a group of 7,524 millionaires and billionaire hedge fund managers who are legally able to move stock prices.
As you’re about to see, with $2.3 trillion in collective buying power, this group has more wealth and political sway than most small countries.
They’ve recently seen prices jump by as much as 300%, 1,135% and 1,400% in just six months.
Most of us wouldn’t touch these stocks…
They’re buying shares in companies like Celator, Energy Recovery and Uni-Pixel, all of which have already gone up nearly 500% in a matter of months.
Since his research started, Bill has been referred to as “The World’s Greatest Stock Picker,” roping in 2-3 double and triple-digit peak gain winners every month.
Bill has not released his research to the public.
