LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- Economic statements filed by the four best-known candidates in the California governor's race reveal holdings as varied as the gubernatorial hopefuls themselves.

Statements of economic interest listing investments, property and sources of income from the past year were due Saturday from anyone running as a replacement candidate. More than 150 candidates have filed to run. (Full story)

Candidates were required only to check ranges of their holdings -- not exact amounts.

Film actor and former bodybuilder Arnold Schwarzenegger, whose filing was 63 pages long, listed large stock holdings and stakes in companies and real estate.

Among his larger holdings, those in which he said he owns between $100,000 and $1 million in stock, are Pepsi, Pfizer, Starbucks, Target and Wal-Mart. He also listed between $10,000 and $100,000 in Microsoft stock.

Schwarzenegger listed himself as president of his production company, Oak Productions, and of Pumping Iron America Inc., each company with a listed value of more than $1 million.

The actor listed stock he valued at more than $1 million in the movie acquisition company Screen Partners, and he listed an interest he valued at between $100,000 and $1 million in the YES Network, a sports network featuring the New York Yankees.

Among the real estate investments Schwarzenegger listed was an interest he valued at more than $1 million in the Easton Town Center shopping complex in Columbus, Ohio.

He listed himself as president of Main Street Plaza in Santa Monica, California, the shopping area that contains his restaurant, Schatzi's. He valued the complex at $1 million or more.

Schwarzenegger also listed ownership of an aircraft, which he leases out, that he valued between $100,000 and $1 million.

Schwarzenegger listed several large gifts over the past year that included a $250 box of cigars from motivational speaker Tony Robbins and $2,500 in shirts and sweaters from designer Giorgio Armani.

Other gifts were a $400 leather belt and a $500 box of cigars from his agents; $500 in promotional clothing from Marietta Hummer in Georgia; and a talking Terminator skull, valued at $1,000, from the film producers of his latest movie, "Terminator 3."

Arianna Huffington's filing was the shortest -- just four pages. She placed a value of at least $1 million on her company, Christabella Inc., where she listed her role as a writer, speaker and commentator. She valued her home in Los Angeles at more than $1 million.

Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt listed no stocks in his filing, which was 26 pages.

Flynt listed himself as chairman of LFP Inc., a magazine and Internet publishing company, and of LFP Video Inc., a video sales and production company. He valued each company at more than $1 million.

He listed a salary of more than $100,000 as chairman of LFP Inc.

The self-described "smut peddler" also listed large real estate holdings. Flynt listed himself as chairman of Flynt Realty, a real estate properties company he valued at more than $1 million, and of Majestic Properties in Gardenia, California, valued at more than $1 million.

He valued the Beverly Hills building that houses his offices at more than $1 million and did the same for another property in Canoga Park, California.

Flynt listed himself as chairman of Hustler Casino, a card room in Gardenia he gave a value of at least $1 million.

He listed ownership of two outlets of the retail store Hustler Entertainment, each valued at more than $1 million, and of Liz's Boutique in Gardenia, valued between $100,000 and $1 million.

Financier and former Republican gubernatorial candidate Bill Simon's filing was the longest -- 184 pages. He listed diversified holdings of at least 50 stocks and funds, among them Cisco, General Electric, Goldman Sachs, Honeywell, Microsoft, Pfizer, Raytheon, Viacom, Waste Management, and AOL Time Warner.

Simon listed himself as a partner in an umbrella group called Alham Inc., a position he said earned him at least $1 million last year.

He listed bonds he valued at $1 million or more at Ford Motor Credit Co., GE Capital and ITT. Simon also listed a number of trust funds for his wife and children.
