Over the second quarter, Twenty-First Century Fox Inc (NASDAQ:FOXA)’s stock gained 11.2%, contributing to Tiger Global’s above-average returns. As the price escalated, the fund could have seen a chance to make some money, and sold some of its stock. However, its stake still makes it the third largest hedge fund shareholder of record of the company.

Other funds with even larger stakes in Twenty-First Century Fox Inc (NASDAQ:FOXA) are Donald Yacktman’s Yacktman Asset Management, which last declared ownership of 44.22 million shares, down from 58.62 million shares and Boykin Curry’s Eagle Capital Management, which owns more than 20.65 million shares of the company, up by 2% over the quarter.

Second in line is Vipshop Holdings Ltd – ADR (NYSE:VIPS), a $12.56 billion market cap Chinese online discount retailer. Tiger Global last declared ownership of more than 2.42 million shares. This position, worth $456 million, makes it the largest hedge fund shareholder of record –amongst those that we track, and accounts for roughly 5.8% of its total equity portfolio.

Vipshop Holdings Ltd – ADR (NYSE:VIPS)’s stock has been in an uptrend for a while now. Year to date, the stock gained more than 157%, and, over 2013, the upsurge reached 535%. Although Tiger Global could not fully reap the profits from this increment, because it started a position in the company over the fourth quarter of 2014, the gains were still large.

Another fund that largely profited from Vipshop Holdings Ltd – ADR (NYSE:VIPS) is John Burbank’s Passport Capital, which last disclosed ownership of 1.59 million shares, after the sale of 201,434 shares over the second quarter.

Last in this list is Dollar General Corp. (NYSE:DG), a $19.38 billion market cap discount retailer of which Tiger Global owns 7.89 million shares.
