Bridgewater bought CenturyLink, Inc. (NYSE:CTL), General Electric Company (NYSE:GE), Expeditors International of Washington (NASDAQ:EXPD), The Walt Disney Company (NYSE:DIS) and Red Hat Inc (NYSE:RHT) in Q1.
Ray Dalio’s Bridgewater Associates Sells DELL, HPQ, VMED
Ray Dalio is not waiting for the Dell Inc. (NASDAQ:DELL) drama to unfold as Carl Icahn and Southeastern Management shake up the board, so Bridgewater exited positions in Dell Inc. (NASDAQ:DELL). The fund sold 1.42 million shares of the PC maker in Q1 and closed the position.
Other holdings that were closed by Bridgewater in Q1 included Apollo Group Inc (NASDAQ:APOL), Hewlett-Packard Company (NYSE:HPQ), Safeway Inc. (NYSE:SWY) and Virgin Media Inc. (NASDAQ:VMED).

The fund also exited CIGNA Corporation (NYSE:CI) and Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE:BRK.B) in Q1.
