McDonald’s  is still a major holding in Simons’ portolio, but he trimmed 2% off the McDonald’s fat from his portfolio in 2Q, and now the fast food chain comprises 2% of Renaissance’s holdings. Simons now owns 8.29 million shares, down from 8.52 million.

Simons boosted his position in Novo Nordisk (NVO) by 5%, and Renaissance now has 16.95 million shares worth $783 million. One of the largest additions was Colgate-Palmolive (CL). Simons’ increased his stake by 30% to 9.6 million shares worth $655 million.
