$12 Billion Hedge Fund Sold $AAPL Bought $GOOG

VIKING GLOBALAndreas Halvorsen’s Viking Global had $12 billion worth of stocks in its 13F portfolio. Halvorsen had more than half a billion dollars invested in Apple at the end of the fourth quarter and he did not have a single share of Google. He decided it is time to sell Apple and switch Google. Viking Global sold out of its Apple position and initiated a $675 million brand new position in Google. Will Google become the most popular technology stock this quarter? Half of the hedge funds haven’t filed their 13Fs yet. We will let you know in a day or two.
