Goldman's VIP list

Fascinating list of stocks predominantly owned by hedge funds, prepared by Goldman Sachs.

The Goldman Sachs 'Very Important Positions' list aggregates the top 50 positions held by hedge funds that utilize fundamental investment strategies.

Among those new additions to the list this quarter are: Tyco International (TYC), Cognizant Tech Solutions (CTSH), Barrick Gold (ABX), Viacom (VIA.B), Covidien (COV), Freeport McMoran (FCX), Covanta (CVA), Davita (DVA), Schlumberger (SLB), US Bancorp (USB), Halliburton (HAL) and General Electric (GE).

Several of them are gold and mining-related.
