Hedge funds struggle to stay afloat

Hedge funds seem to be stranded on a sinking ship as losses accumulate this year.

One hedge fund who betted against GameStop is closing this month.

Last year many hedge funds were forced to cut their losses and throw in the towel on losing bets.

Tiger Global Management closed 2021 with a 7% loss.

They reported a 52% loss this year through May.

The hedge fund may be on track for its worst year yet.

Earlier this year we saw Citadel and other hedge funds faced default on Russian bonds from tech company Yandex.

Investors tried pulling out $250 million from Coatue Management but the hedge fund couldn’t meet investors demands.

Aside from the shorting of ‘meme stocks’, hedge funds are also getting burned from tech stocks falling.

The NASDAQ has fallen nearly -32% this year-to-date taking down every major tech company down with it.

Amazon (AMZN) is down more than -37% this year, Tesla (TSLA) -45%, and Apple (AAPL ) -27.72%.

Carvana is down nearly -90%, one of the heaviest held assets by Tiger Global Management.

Tiger Cubs ditch positions

The Tiger Cubs alliance consists of Tiger Global Management, Lone Pine Capital, Coatue Management, Maverick Capital, Viking Global Investors and D1 Capital.

According to Bloomberg, majority of the Tiger Cubs stock picks are in tech stocks.

Tiger Global exited 83 positions depicted in the chart below and entered only 2 new positions.

The Tiger Cubs have been known for piling into the same or similar stocks primarily because they all had the same mentor.

Below is a list of only some tech companies the Tiger Cubs have recently reduced from their positions.

Big name companies include Carvana, DoorDash, Netflix, and Shopify to name a few.

These companies might have been extremely convenient during the pandemic lockdowns, but the truth is people are going out now.

Now that gyms are open to the public, people have no need for Peloton.

Netflix couldn’t replace the movie theatres, and so on.

Some experiences are simply irreplaceable.

And it’s showing in tech company stock.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on the matter.

The Tiger Cubs Are on The Brink of Collapsing

Tiger Cubs Hedge Fund
Market News: Tiger Cubs face disturbing losses as tech stocks fall

(Bloomberg) Hedge fund managers known as Tiger Cubs are facing serious carnage in the market.

The alliance consists of Tiger Global Management, Lone Pine Capital, Coatue Management, Maverick Capital, Viking Global Investors and D1 Capital 

Billions were made in tech stocks, but gains have now evaporated.

Tech stocks have fallen the first quarter of 2022 and have bled into the second quarter this year.

Is it possible the Tiger Cubs are the next hedge fund managers to join Melvin Capital’s grand exit?

Let’s discuss it.

NASDAQ plummets in 2022

The tech-heavy NASDAQ 100 has fallen more than 29% this year.

It’s down more than 11% from the S&P 500 (down 18.47% YTD).

According to Bloomberg, majority of the Tiger Cubs stock picks are in tech stocks.

Tiger Global exited 83 positions depicted in the chart below and entered only 2 new positions.

The hedge fund sank 34% the first quarter of 2022.

Coatue Management is another hedge fund who has been struggling to keep its doors open this year.

Last year investors demanded to pull out $250 million from the hedge fund but Coatue was unable to meet demands.

Coatue said the money they could not deliver to their clients was being held in private companies, making it difficult to liquidate.

Today we see Coatue Management exited 35 stocks and only entered 12 so far.

The rest of the cubs aren’t doing so well with everyone exiting more positions than entering them.

The Tiger Cubs have been known for piling into the same or similar stocks since they all had the same mentor.

These hedge funds are facing significant losses despite being in it together.

Melvin Capital saw a 50% loss in 2021 and another 20.6% during the first quarter of 2022 before throwing in the towel.

The hedge fund was destroyed by retail investors when it decided to bet against game retailer GameStop and other ‘meme stocks’.

Ken Griffin defended Gabe Plotkin’s Melvin Capital in a Bloomberg exclusive attacking retail investors.

The Citadel founders said retail investors wiped out teacher’s pension plans by bankrupting Melvin Capital.

And the retail community is biting back, speaking the truth.

CALPERS, the largest pension fund in America loaded up on AMC and GameStop and sold Netflix, though.

Ray Dalio’s Bridgewater sold Tesla this Q1 and bought AMC stock for the first time and increased their stake in GameStop.

These are two examples where conventional wisdom doesn’t always make sense (i.e., investing in fundamental tech stocks).

And we can see hedge funds who do follow this ‘conventional wisdom’ are suffering because of it.

Which hedge fund will be next to fall?

Some of you said on Twitter Tiger Global could be the next hedge fund to fall.

Coatue Management has been in deep waters too.

I’m curious to know what you think about where hedge funds are currently headed.
