Google Inc (GOOG), Intel Corporation (INTC) and 3 Other Big Bets from Paul Tudor Jones

Page 1 of 2

TUDOR INVESTMENT CORPPaul Tudor Jones founded Tudor Investment in 1980 and has amassed a personal net worth of over $3 billion since. Thanks to his success, Tudor has the ability to charge above-average fees – a 4% management fee on AUM and a 23% performance fee – compared to the typical 2-and-20 structure. Tudor recently filed its third quarter 13F with the SEC, which reveals the public long-only equity holdings of the firm. In reviewing Tudor’s filing, we found five big-name stocks that the fund was loading up on. These five increases were focused on the tech and pharma industries, with each stock seeing at least a 100% increase from one quarter earlier (see Tudor’s newest stock picks).

Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) saw Tudor increase its stake over 500% last quarter. Intel is down over 30% year to date on continued PC sale weakness. Despite this stagnant segment, Intel does expect to grow revenue by 1% next year, with data center growth countering slowing PC sales. The chip-making giant pays quite the dividend, yielding 4.4%, which is even more impressive when you consider it is only a 35% payout of earnings. We see interim growth as being limited due to an expected decline in PC growth, but remain confident in Intel’s dividend given its $10 billion in cash on hand. Intel is still one of the top ten tech stocks loved by hedge funds (see all 10 here).

Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) is now Tudor’s 13th largest 13F holding following a 300% increase in the firm’s shares last quarter. Despite an earnings hiccup – with Google missing estimates by 15% in 3Q – the stock managed to be up 30% during the third quarter. The search giant is expected to grow revenues by 16% in 2013, driven in part by the competed integration of Motorola Mobility. Google’s core business is expected to perform well also, with revenues up 21% in 2012 and 17% in 2013. Google trades a 22x trailing earnings, but is just a mere 13.5x on a forward-looking basis. Steven Cohen was one of the many billionaires who was bullish on Google last quarter (see Steven Cohen and SAC Capital’s top picks).

Dell Inc. (NASDAQ:DELL) was a near 1,000% increase for Tudor in 3Q – the largest of his five big bets listed. This PC company has been beaten down due to similar pressures as Intel: slowing PC sales. Dell is weathering the storm much better than rival HP, but should still manage to grow earnings over the next five years thanks to initiatives in the acquisitions market.

Dell hopes to break into the software business and its $2.4 billion purchase of Quest Software earlier this year was a big step. Assuming Dell can make a successful pivot toward software and continue innovation in its hardware segment – most notably via an ultrabook-tablet combo – we believe it is a value play. Dell trades at only 6x forward earnings, but also has a 6% expected long-term EPS growth rate, putting its PEG close to 1.0. Bridgewater Associates’ Ray Dalio upped his stake in Dell by over 60% last quarter (see Ray Dalio’s other key moves here).
