It’s quite interesting that Viking Global dedicated a whole paragraph on this issue in its most recent investor letter. Courtesy of DealBreaker,

There is no categorical answer to this question, but I would like to discuss some of the factors we consider when establishing and maintaining positions in companies known to be popular with our peers. First and foremost, the critical issue is whether we are ultimately proven right in our analysis.

Some users asked us how we got started on the fundville idea. The answer was both easy and difficult. The easy part is that we, like many diligent investors, tried very hard to find institutional ownership of stocks. We knew that following smart money would be a long term winning strategy.

Therefore, we decided to start from scratch, and build up our own database of institutional ownership.

Julian Robertson’s Tigers, under the “rigorous” training of Wall Street with fear and greed, have lost wildness and become typical civilized Americans. They love “Apple” (AAPL), like to “Google” (GOOG), drink “Pepsi” (PEP) all the time, eat “Monsanto” (MON) gene modified pop corns, watch TV from “DirecTV” (DTV) and enjoy shopping with credit cards from “Visa” (V) and “MasterCard” (MA). They all live in big houses (IYR) and bank at the Chase (JPM). Once in a while, they bid expensive stuff from EBay (EBAY). Well, that’s basically the 10 most popular stocks held by 38 Tiger Club members, all are acclaimed successful hedge fund managers.
