Copycats, take notice: The 13F regulatory filings from major investors were released on Thursday evening, giving smaller investors a peek into the sometimes-guarded portfolios of Warren Buffett, David Einhorn and Carl Icahn.

Of course, the portfolio changes occurred during the first quarter, adding some risk to any attempts to mimic the pros; what Mr. Einhorn did in March, for example, could have been un-done since then.

But it's hard to look away when so much money – and big reputations – are at stake. Here's a roundup (via Whalewisdom and the Wall Street Journal) of some of the bigger changes among some of the more famous investors. By the looks of it, George Soros has soured on banks while David Tepper thinks that travel is going to pick up and Mr. Buffett is keen on cable.
