Steve Mandel’ Lone Pine Capital Reports Q1 Trades

Inoculated Investor

Hedge fund manager Steve Mandel of Lone Pine Capital reported its Q1 portfolio. As of 03/31/2011, Lone Pine Capital owns 60 stocks with a total value of $12.6 billion. These are the details of the buys and sells.

Lone Pine Capital is a long/short equity hedge fund headquartered in Greenwich, Connecticut. Lone Pine Capital’s managing director is Stephen Mandel who earned his AB from Dartmouth College in 1978, and his MBA from Harvard Business School in 1982. With his education credentials in hand, Stephen Mandel would go on to serve as an analyst and consultant at several major firms, from Tiger Management to Goldman Sachs. Learning and networking from his tenure at these big firms, he launched Lone Pine Capital in 1997. In 2010, Mandel was named the 655th richest billionaire in the world. Mandel currently sits on the board of Dartmouth College, and serves as a director for Teach for America.

Stephen Mandel, like several other money managers, is often referred to as a “tiger-cub”. This originated from his tenure with renowned investor, Julian Robertson at Tiger Management Corporation. Julian Robertson is credited as one of the earliest founders of hedge funds. From his initial startup of $8 million, he made over $22 billion upon that capital by utilizing talented men and women as analysts from around the country. Many these analysts, who are now so eloquently referred to as “tiger-cubs”, would go on to launch their own hedge funds, When Julian Robertson shut down Tiger Management in 2000, he decided to further develop, mentor, and fund several of those that he felt were his brightest analysts. These analysts would then be known as “tiger-seeds”, and like their predecessors, would launch their own funds.

As a whole however, the successes of these funds cannot be described as consistent. The cubs are generally more successful then the seeds, perhaps due to their direct exposure and tutorage under Robertson. Several of the seeds posted losses in their first year, while others are under investigation for securities misconduct. It has been reasoned that these unspectacular results lie in the long-short equity strategy that Robertson utilized. The long-short equity strategy invests primarily in stocks, and as such, is more exposed to global macro events. Though fundamentals are pivotal to value investing, these funds experience greater movement in their positions due to the cyclical nature of the market. In addition, these new seeds are receiving less and less mentorage from Robertson, and as such, are not of the same veteran caliber as the cubs were when they launched their own funds.

Nonetheless, as a portfolio manager, Stephen Mandel boasts of beating the benchmark S&P 500 by 20% each year for the last 11 years. His success can be attributed to his methodology of “bottom-up” investing. At its very core, bottom-up investing deemphasizes the important of macroeconomic events and indicators, but rather, focuses on the fundamentals of the company. That being said, a through analysis of a company must be performed to understand its practices, operations, and future growth in order to render the final decision whether to long or short. Unlike most managers however, Stephen Mandel moves relatively quickly in and out of positions.
