Tiger Global Management held around $8.12 billion in shares of U.S publicly-traded companies, with the top three holdings represented by tech companies and amassing over 60% of the total value. Chase Coleman is one of the best performing Tiger Cubs, which is why we follow his moves as part of our investment strategy.

With this in mind, let’s take a look at Tiger Global Management’s top five holdings, starting from the bottom. On the fifth spot is Restoration Hardware Holdings Inc (NYSE:RH), in which the fund held 3.19 million shares as of the end of September; the value of the stake amounting to $297.98 million and representing 3.67% of Tiger Global’s equity portfolio. Restoration Hardware is a $3.7 billion home furnishings retailer, whose stock has gained nearly 11% since the beginning of 2015. Though it has lost over 10% in the last three months, being just ahead of the holiday season, Restoration Hardware Holdings Inc (NYSE:RH) could be a good stock to hold. Analysts are also bullish on Restoration Hardware, with a number of them upgrading the stock to ‘Buy’ or ‘Outperform’ in the last couple of weeks. Ken Griffin’s Citadel Advisors is another shareholder of Restoration Hardware Holdings Inc (NYSE:RH), which added 604,021 shares to its stake in the third quarter, reporting ownership of 1.01 million shares as of the end of September.

In FleetCor Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:FLT), Coleman’s fund reported a $628.92 million stake that contains 4.57 million shares. FleetCor Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:FLT)’s stock slid by 11% in the third quarter, but the investor kept his bullish thesis and took the opportunity to acquire 1.47 million shares, raising the stake by 47% on the quarter. So far, FleetCor’s shares are flat in year-to-date terms and sport a P/E ratio of 32.7, which is above the median for the S&P 500, but below the industry average. FleetCor provides fuel cards and other payment solutions for oil companies and retailers and should benefit from the growth in the payment business as more and more customers switch to non-cash methods of payment. Another Tiger Cub, Stephen Mandel of Lone Pine Capital, is also fond of FleetCor Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:FLT), as Lone Pine reported ownership of 6.43 million shares in its 13F filing for the third quarter.
