Legendary investor Julian Robertson doesn’t manage tens of billions of dollars and employ bright analysts anymore. However, he still follows the market and receives stock tips from his “Tiger cubs”. We calculated the returns for his largest 10 stock picks in his Tiger Management fund.
Robertson’s top 10 stock picks returned 8.1% since the end of first quarter, vs. 1.8% return for the SPY. His top stock picks beat the market by more than 6 percentage points in a little over 3 months. Half of his stock picks had double digit returns. Amazon, Mastercard, and Visa returned more than 20%.
Robertson seems like he’s getting his investment ideas from Andreas Halvorsen, Chase Coleman and John Griffin. Chase Coleman has AAPL, AMZN, MA, V, and CVC in his portfolio. John Griffin has AAPL, AMZN, CVC, GS, and VRX. Andreas Halvorsen had AAPL (sold out), AMZN, GOOG (sold out), LYB, TWC, and VRX in his portfolio.
