The fund has lost 6.3% in the month of May. This is after the Chinese crackdown caused stock prices of JD.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: JD), Pinduoduo Inc. (NASDAQ: PDD) and Alibaba Group Holding Limited (NYSE: BABA) to decline.

As of the end of the first quarter, Tiger Global Management LLC holds significant stakes in companies including Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT), Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN), and Facebook, Inc. (NASDAQ: FB)

Tiger Global's Top 10 Stocks Picks and Performance
Tiger Global's Top 10 Stocks Picks and Performance

Average investors have to tread the financial markets with extreme caution. Even experts are having a hard time making sense of the rapidly changing world. The hedge fund industry's reputation has been tarnished in the last decade, during which its hedged returns couldn’t keep up with the unhedged returns of the market indices. On the other hand, Insider Monkey's research was able to identify in advance a select group of hedge fund holdings that outperformed the S&P 500 ETFs by more than 124 percentage points since March 2017. Between March 2017 and February 26, 2021, our monthly newsletter's stock picks returned 197.2%, vs. 72.4% for the SPY. Our stock picks outperformed the market by more than 124 percentage points (see the details here). We were also able to identify a select group of hedge fund holdings that significantly underperformed the market in advance. We have been tracking and sharing the list of these stocks since February 2017, and they lost 13% through November 16. That's why we believe hedge fund sentiment is a handy indicator that investors should consider. You can subscribe to our free newsletter on our homepage to receive our stories in your inbox.

With this context in mind, here is our list of Tiger Global's top 10 stocks picks and performance. We used Coleman’s 13F portfolio for the first quarter for this analysis.

Tiger Global's Top 10 Stocks Picks and Performance

10. Zoom Video Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZM)

Coleman’s Stake Value: $787,226,000 Percentage of Chase Coleman’s 13F Portfolio: 1.81% Number of Hedge Fund Holders: 54

Zoom Video Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZM) is an American communications technology company. Zoom Video Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZM) was incorporated in 2011 and is placed tenth on the list of Tiger Global's top 10 stocks picks and performance. Zoom shares have offered investors more than 37% in returns over the past year. The stock is up 17.68% since March 31.

On July 29, KeyBanc analyst Steve Enders upgraded Zoom Video Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZM) to "Overweight" from "Sector Weight" with a price target of $428. On July 18, Zoom Video Communications (NASDAQ: ZM) agreed to buy cloud contact center operator Five9, Inc. (NASDAQ: FIVN) in a stock-for-stock deal worth $14.7 billion. The acquisition will help Zoom Video Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZM) strengthen its footprint with enterprise customers and accelerate its long-term growth opportunities. Zoom stock is up 24.68% since March 31.

The hedge fund chaired by Chase Coleman holds 2.45 million shares in Zoom Video Communications (NASDAQ: ZM) worth over $787 million. Tiger Global Management LLC's stake in Zoom increased by 70% in the past few months. Just like Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT), Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN), and Facebook, Inc. (NASDAQ: FB), Zoom Video Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZM) is one of the best stocks to buy according Tiger Global.

Artisan Partners, in its first-quarter 2021 investor letter, mentioned Zoom Video Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZM). Here is what the fund said:

“We concluded our campaigns in Zoom Video Communications. We have been paring our position in Zoom for several quarters, anticipating the reduced need for video conferencing as vaccination rates climb and people return to their workplaces. That said, we believe there is a strong case to be made that the pandemic has prompted a permanent inflection in videoconferencing’s importance—sustainably higher remote work arrangements, more online learning and less business travel. Furthermore, the company’s dramatically expanded user base (up 485% YoY in Q3) positions it well to cross sell additional services, Zoom Phone in particular. The long-term future remains bright, but we decided to end our successful investment campaign in favor of opportunities in our pipeline with more attractive near-term growth prospects.”

9. RingCentral, Inc. (NYSE: RNG)

Coleman’s Stake Value: $990,859,000 Percentage of Chase Coleman’s 13F Portfolio: 2.27% Number of Hedge Fund Holders: 51

RingCentral, Inc. (NYSE: RNG) is an American supplier of cloud-based communications and collaboration solutions for businesses.

Carillon Tower Advisers, in its first quarter 2021 investor letter, mentioned RingCentral, Inc. (NYSE: RNG). Here is what the fund said:

“RingCentral operates as a provider of software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions for global enterprise cloud communications. After a stellar final quarter of 2020, the stock suffered a bit as of late, as investors began to worry about the reopening of the economy and perhaps were forced to consider the degree to which the company has benefitted from the lockdowns and the work-from-home environment. Although the shares have pulled back to a more reasonable valuation, we believe there remains significant opportunity for growth in the next three to five years that should come from the numerous channel partnerships the company has been signing recently.”

8. DocuSign, Inc. (NASDAQ: DOCU)

Coleman’s Stake Value: $1,042,820,000 Percentage of Chase Coleman’s 13F Portfolio: 2.39% Number of Hedge Fund Holders: 60

ClearBridge Investments, in its second quarter 2021 investor letter, mentioned DocuSign, Inc. (NASDAQ: DOCU). Here is what the fund said:

“We expect rapidly growing disruptors will comprise roughly a quarter of portfolio assets over time and repositioning over the next several quarters will focus on increasing our allocation to these stocks. Our objective with disruptors is to purchase companies early in the development of their market opportunity. DocuSign, a new purchase in the first quarter that we added to significantly over the last three months, is a company we have been following since it was private. Although the growth of its esignature business accelerated during COVID-19 lockdowns, DocuSign is targeting additional markets in today’s anywhere economy and its strong recent results eased fears that the company was simply a pandemic beneficiary.”

7. ServiceNow, Inc. (NYSE: NOW)

Palm Capital, in its first quarter 2021 investor letter, mentioned ServiceNow, Inc. (NYSE: NOW). Here is what the hedge fund has to say about ServiceNow in its letter:

“ServiceNow provides software solutions to structure and automate various tasks and processes for large businesses. The company began in 2004 with a solution to help businesses manage the IT services they offer employees and customers. But, unlike the existing solutions in the market, ServiceNow’s offering was built using a modern architecture that was flexible, modular, and user-friendly. And it left the incumbents – large companies such as BMC, IBM, and MicroFocus – playing catch up.

As the company grew to dominate this market, it saw the opportunity to expand its offering to include the broader task of IT Operations Management – or the monitoring and control of an entire business's IT infrastructure. And over time, its success in improving productivity and user experience in IT resulted in customers asking the company to expand its offering into other business workflows including HR Management and Customer Services – which it has since done….” (Click here to see the full text)

6. Uber Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: UBER)

Coleman’s Stake Value: $1,134,992,000 Percentage of Chase Coleman’s 13F Portfolio: 2.61% Number of Hedge Fund Holders: 130

Uber Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: UBER), commonly known as Uber, is an American technology company that provides ride-hailing, food delivery, package delivery, couriers, and freight transportation services. Uber Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: UBER) was founded in 2009 and is placed sixth on the list of Tiger Global's top 10 stocks picks. Uber shares have offered investors returns exceeding 28% over the course of the past 12 months. However, the stock is down 23.30% since March 31.

On August 2, Gordon Haskett analyst Robert Mollins initiated a coverage on Uber Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: UBER) with a “Buy” rating and price target of $65. On July 19, Uber Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: UBER) declared that Uber and Uber Eats customers can now easily access on-demand and scheduled grocery delivery in more than 400 cities and towns across the United States. A new 1,200-store deal with Albertsons Companies, Inc. (NYSE: ACI) is the first significant grocery delivery expansion

Chase Coleman’s Tiger Global Management LLC currently holds 20.82 million shares of Uber Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: UBER) that amounts to $1.13 billion. Uber occupies 2.61% of Tiger Global Management LLC total portfolio. At the end of the first quarter of 2021, 130 hedge funds in the database of Insider Monkey held stakes worth $10.53 billion in Uber, down from 135 the preceding quarter worth $10.09 billion.

Just like Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT), Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN), and Facebook, Inc. (NASDAQ: FB), Uber Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: UBER) is one of the best stocks to buy according Tiger Global.

In its fourth-quarter 2020 investor letter, RiverPark Advisors, LLC, highlighted a few stocks, and Uber Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: UBER) was one of them. Here is what the fund said:

"UBER was also a strong contributor, as shares rallied following the approval of California's Proposition 22 by voters, allowing the company's California-based drivers to remain independent contractors (rather than become more expensive employees). We believe this news is not just about the 10%-15% of Uber's revenue tied to California, but the influence this will have on other states reassessing driver pay. UBER also reported strong third-quarter results with Delivery Gross Bookings growing 135% year-over-year, which nearly fully offset a reduction in Mobility Gross Bookings, which were down 50% year over year. Total Gross Bookings for the quarter were down only 10% year over year compared with down 35% last quarter.

Despite the COVID disruption, UBER remains the undisputed global leader in ride-sharing (44% of the Company's third quarter revenue), with greater than 50% share in every major region in which it operates. The company is also a leader in food delivery (46% of revenue), where it is number one or two in the more than 25 countries in which it operates. We view UBER as more than just ride sharing and food delivery, but also as a global mobility platform with the ability to sell to its more than 100 million users (by comparison, Amazon Prime has 130+ million members) and penetrate new markets of on-demand services, such as grocery delivery, truck brokerage and worker staffing for shift work. At its current $96 billion market capitalization, UBER trades at only 6x next year’s revenue from its two core businesses. Additionally, the company has substantial, seemingly unrecognized, value in its several nascent development businesses and another $12 billion in equity stakes in synergistic businesses around the world.”
