Billionaires Julian Robertson and Chase Coleman Like the Same Stocks

Chase Coleman is one of Julian Robertson’s most successful disciples. Soon after Robertson closed Tiger Management for outside investors in 2000, he handed Chase Coleman $25 million in seed capital to launch his Tiger Global Management. Chase Coleman’s firm is seen as one of the best-performing hedge funds recently, returning 45% in 2011, 23% in 2012 and 14% in 2013. Julian Robertson, who is widely recognized as the founder of the “hedge fund” concept, tutored many lads in his style of investing, so it’s not surprising that Chase Coleman and Julian Robertson often share the same visions when it comes to picking stocks to invest in. Specifically, Inc. (NASDAQ:JD) and Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) represent the top holdings of both investors, so we’ll be discussing these companies in more detail later on in this article.

We pay attention to hedge funds’ moves because our research has shown that hedge funds are extremely talented at picking stocks on the long side of their portfolios. It is true that hedge fund investors have been underperforming the market in recent years. However, this was mainly because hedge funds’ short positions lost a ton of money during the bull market that started in March 2009. We have been tracking the performance of hedge funds’ 15 most popular small-cap stock picks in real time since the end of August 2012. These stocks have returned 123% since then and outperformed the S&P 500 Index by around 66 percentage points (see more details here). That’s why we believe it is important to pay attention to hedge fund sentiment; we also don’t like paying huge fees.

(NASDAQ:JD), in which Julian Robertson’s Tiger Management reported owning 3.14 million shares in its latest 13F filing, marking an increase of 2.71 million shares during the quarter.

Meanwhile, Tiger Global Management added some 49.25 million shares to its stake in, taking it to 70.16 million shares, worth $2.39 billion, which makes it the fund’s largest position.’s competitor Alibaba Group Holding Limited (NYSE:BABA) has recently announced a deal with consumer electronics retailer Suning Commerce Group in an effort to support its omnichannel efforts, logistics capabilities and electronics selection, which will eventually toughen the rivalry and competition between the two Chinese e-commerce companies. On August 7, has released its financial results for the second quarter, posting revenue of RMB45.9 billion ($7.4 billion), up by 61% year-to-date. At the same time, the company’s net loss for the quarter narrowed to RMB510.4 million ($82.3 million) from RMB582.5 million ($91.1 million) reported a year ago. The stock of, China’s largest online sales company, gained 15% year-to-date despite suffering a serious slump under the devastating weight of the Chinese stock market collapse.
