This World's Largest Hedge Fund Buys More Nio, XPeng Shares In Q2, Takes Fresh Positions In 2 U.S. EV Startups

Ray Dalio-founded hedge fund Bridgewater Associates may have disposed of its entire holdings in most Chinese tech stocks, but it still swears by the country's electric vehicle startups.

What Happened: Bridgewater added to its positions in Nio Inc ADR NIO and XPeng Inc - ADR XPEV, a 13F filing by the fund revealed. Although the nearly 50-year-old firm took some money off the table by selling a small stake in Li Auto Inc LI, it still has a significant position in the company.

Here are Bridgewater's positions at the end of the second quarter:

Nio: 5.53 million (up from 5.32 million in the first quarter)
XPeng: 2.16 million (up from 2.15 million in the first quarter)
Li Auto: 3.27 million (down from 3.36 million in the first quarter)
