Deep Dive: What Apple and a chicken processor have in common for this fund manager

Like Warren Buffett, Whitney George of the Sprott Focus Trust is bullish on Apple.

George has been a follower of the legendary value-style investor since the mid-1980s. Some of his picks reflect that.

The Sprott Focus Trust’s FUND, -1.06% largest holding at the end of December was Apple Inc. AAPL, +0.59% accounting for 4.7% of the closed-end fund’s assets. Buffett, who’s CEO of Berkshire Hathaway Inc. BRK.B, -0.12% made an unusual disclosure this week when he said he had doubled his investment in Apple since the end of 2016.

George sees the same type of value in three other companies he mentioned in an interview this week: Sanderson Farms Inc.
