Maverick initiated a position of 2.2 million shares in $2.1 billion market cap business software company Qlik Technologies Inc (NASDAQ:QLIK). The earnings multiples are quite high here- for example, the forward P/E is 43- though revenue numbers at least have been strong. With the company reporting lower net income in Q4 than a year ago, however, we’d be sure to investigate what is happening in terms of costs. SAC Capital Advisors was also buying Qlik Technologies Inc (NASDAQ:QLIK), and closed December with 1.5 million shares in its portfolio; that fund is managed by billionaire Steve Cohen.
