Cryder Capital Boosts Bets On Alphabet (GOOG), Credit Cards, Health Stocks

Ferdinand Groos Cryder Capital Partners LLP is a London-based investment firm founded in 2011. The fund invests almost exclusively in technology and healthcare stocks, and had a 13F portfolio valued at $170.62 million on September 30, up from just $124.64 million on June 30. 45% of that value was invested in health stocks, with 42% being invested in the tech sector.

Given the jump in 13F portfolio value, it’s unsurprising that Cryder Capital boosted its holdings in various stocks during the September quarter. We’ll take a look at those moves in this article, which include Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG), Mastercard Inc (NYSE:MA), Visa Inc. (NYSE:V), Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. (NYSE:TMO), and HCA Holdings Inc (NYSE:HCA).

We follow over 700 hedge funds and other institutional investors and by analyzing their quarterly 13F filings, we identify stocks that they are collectively bullish on and develop investment strategies based on this data. One strategy that outperformed the market over the last year involves selecting the 100 best-performing funds and identifying the 30 mid-cap stocks that they are collectively the most bullish on. Over the past year, this strategy generated returns of 18%, topping the 8% gain registered by S&P 500 ETFs.
