Lone Pine, run by Stephen Mandel Jr., bought 5.3 million shares of Beijing-based Baidu, owner of China’s biggest search engine, with a market value of about $821 million, according to a regulatory filing today by Greenwich, Connecticut-based Lone Pine. The fund now holds 700,600 shares of Purchase, New York-based MasterCard valued at $471 million and 773,737 shares of Seattle-based Amazon valued at $242 million.
New positions included 6.3 million shares in DaVita Healthcare Partners Inc. worth almost $359 million and 10.1 million shares of Pandora Media Inc. listed at $253 million, according to the filing.
Lone Pine sold its $457 million stake in New York-based Ralph Lauren, composed of 2.6 million shares in the fashion designer. The fund also eliminated positions in Intuitive Surgical Inc., Hertz Global Holdings Inc. and WR Grace & Co. (GRA), the filing shows.
Money managers who oversee more than $100 million in equities must file a Form 13F with the Securities and Exchange Commission within 45 days of each quarter’s end to list their U.S.-traded stocks, options and convertible bonds. The filings don’t show non-U.S. securities or how much cash the firms hold.
