According to the firm’s latest 13F, Jat Capital Management increased its position in NFLX by 45% to 468 thousand shares in the second quarter. So in other words, the firm had just added net 3.55 million shares to its portfolio. NFLX had a dramatic price curve in 2011. The stock had soared 60% from January to July, but in September it suddenly jumped all the way to a negative 35% year to date return.
