Michael Burry — the famed investor portrayed by Christian Bale in "The Big Short" — added five news stocks to his hedge fund in the first quarter, according to a 13F filed with the SEC last week.

Burry's hedge fund, Scion Asset Management, had $387 million in assets as of March 31, and its biggest investment is Gamestop, which represents nearly 18% of Scion's portfolio.

Amid the coronavirus pandemic and market sell-off, Burry added some new large cap stakes into his portfolio, including Boeing, which sold off more than 50% in the first quarter.

Back in March, Burry revealed in an interview with Bloomberg that he made a significant bearish bet that was paying off amid the market sell off.

Listed below are the five new stocks Michael Burry added to his portfolio in the first quarter.
