Does your fund own Apple?

January 18, 2011

The Apple Inc. logo is seen through raindrops on a window outside of the New York City flagship Apple store in New York, January 18, 2011. REUTERS/Mike SegarWhich mutual funds and exchange-traded funds have taken the biggest bite of Apple stock? We asked Lipper, a unit of Thomson Reuters, to identify the 50 fund portfolios with the largest stakes in Apple.

On January 17 — when U.S. markets were closed — Apple announced that its co-founder, chief executive and “magician” Steve Jobs is taking a medical leave for the third time, raising concerns about the future for the maker of popular computer and consumer products.

Want to see how your fund is performing on Apple’s news? Just click on the fund name in the table below to get its profile. Keep in mind that exchange-traded funds, such as the PowerShares QQQ Trust — which had nearly 20 percent of its assets in Apple stock through November 30, 2010 — are tracked in real time. The performance of U.S. mutual funds, by contrast, is tallied after the markets close. And remember that your fund may have sold shares by the time you read this.

(Fund assets are reported through November 30, 2010, unless noted with an asterisk.)
