Tiger Global Lost $16 Billion In 4 Months, But Held These 2 Dividend Payers

As of Nov. 14, hedge funds are required to release what trades they have made over the course of the third quarter. Looking at past trades, it can still be extremely useful for investors wondering what “smart money” is doing with their investments.

Chase Coleman, hedge fund manager and founder of Tiger Global Management, has taken a large blow to his portfolio. In the first four months of 2022, Tiger Global's main strategy was down roughly 44%.
