FORTUNE -- Any institution with more than $100 million in equities under management was required to file a Form 13f Wednesday telling the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission what stocks they bought and sold last quarter, and once again Apple (AAPL) was the No. 1 equity in their portfolios.
To be sure, there was a 5.2% reduction in the number of shares held by the big institutions -- to 572 million from 603 million the previous quarter.
But according to Whale Watch, which provides a summary of the 13fs on its website, more big funds added to their Apple holdings in Q1 2013 than reduced them.
From Whale Watch's report, as of Friday morning:
|Apple shares soar on increased buyback|
|Many low-wage workers not protected by minimum wage|
|Stocks: The win streak is over|
|HBO shows coming to Amazon ... not Netflix|
|Facebook profit triples on mobile growth|
