Chase Coleman is another "Tiger Cub" who was taken under Robertson's wing when he was just 24. Coleman also has the distinction of being a descendant of Peter Styuyvestant (the Dutch Governor of New York who actually built the Wall on Wall St.). Coleman's Tiger Global fund has compounded at over 20% since he founded it in 2001 and he has more of a tech focus than many of his Tiger brethren.

In Q3, Coleman increased exposure to a lot of his top names-with the biggest increase in shares in BIDU and started a new position (that was in the top 20) in Homeaway (AWAY) (of which Tiger Global is the top institutional shareholder with almost 6% of shares outstanding.)

In Q4, Coleman substantialy increased his stake in Priceline (PCLN) (just like his Tiger Cub brethren Ken Griffen) and especially Google (GOOG) increasing his shares 10 times. His biggest position, however, remains a little known company called Yandex ("the Google of Russia") that was recently featured in this Bloomberg article:

Yandex NV (YNDX) surged to a three-month high in the U.S. as a deal to make Twitter Inc.'s feed available to users of Russia's most popular search engine bolstered the outlook for the company.

As can be seen, Chase Coleman is making a huge bet after only introducing it into the portfolio in Q2:
