Tiger cubs Coatue and Viking take differing views on Apple

Related Topics

Hedge fund Coatue Management ditched its holding in Apple during the first three months of the year, while fellow Tiger cub Viking Global built a sizeable new position in the tech giant, according to a report by Reuters.

The report cites regulatory filings as revealing that Coatue, founded by Philippe Laffont, held 2.4 million shares of Apple in December, worth $470.6m but had sold off that stake entirely by the end of March.

A 13-F filing by Viking meanwhile, shows that firm opened a new stake worth $663.8m in Apple doing the quarter, as well as as similar position in Microsoft.

The iPhone maker’s shares plunged almost 11% in the first quarter as the company faced fiercer competition in China and falling revenues, although the share price has recovered so far in Q2 and is now down 1.5% year to date.
