    a handful of billionaires are quietly dumping their American stocks . . . and fast.

    Warren Buffett, who has been a cheerleader for U.S. stocks for quite some time, is dumping shares at an alarming rate.
    Paulson & Co., dumped 14 million shares of JPMorgan Chase.

    Soros recently sold nearly all of his bank stocks, including shares of JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, and Goldman Sachs.

    and so it begins...

    So is there a safe place to park 401k funds besides pulling them completely out? Money Markets? Foreign Bonds?
    Insanity should be defined as trusting the government to solve a problem they caused in the first place. Please do not go insane!

    Don't use money markets. They may bust the buck, and you will have no recourse. Supposedly new rules have been silently put into place to allow money market funds to easily switch to a floating NAV (i.e. no longer a dollar).

    You might want to look into why these people are selling stocks rather than creating your own hypothesis. Paulson, for example, has a huge hedge fund company which has not been doing too well lately. So investors want their money back. Thus, Paulson is selling his positions of all kinds. I was one of many taking advantage of his selling pressure in a couple stocks. Paulson has a lot of stuff to liquidate.

    Buffett did sell some shares- but he was also buying other shares. He is not getting out of stocks.
    During Q3 2012 Berkshire's (BRK.A) (BRK.B) US long stock portfolio increased marginally from $74.3B to $75.3B. The total number of holdings increased from 37 to 38 this quarter. The new positions are Deere & Company (DE), Media General (MEG), Precision Castparts (PCP) and Wabco Holding (WBC). Combined, they account for less than 1% of the US long portfolio. Stake eliminations were CVS Caremark Corp. (CVS), Dollar General (DG), and Ingersoll-Rd (IR). This was a fairly active quarter with minor adjustments made to several positions along with a few big changes - only 16 of the 38 stocks in the portfolio remained steady this quarter. As with the last quarter, the largest five positions and their allocations remained steady. Combined, they account for around 75% of the overall portfolio value.
    More details of what he was buying and selling at link. I predict we can find the others were also buying and selling shares.

    Yep- same story there.

    Link in OP does seem to be a sales pitch rather than a serious article.

    Ditto. Money Markets are junk status. They yield nothing, and carry high risk.
