Hedge Funds Loved Facebook and Google Last Quarter

GOOG GOOGL +1 more GOOG GOOGL FB

Any hedge fund with more than $100 million in assets under management has to file a 13F with the SEC detailing its top U.S. equity positions. However, these reports do not contain detailed analysis on other assets, such as debt, cash and private equity. Still, these findings can give us some great insight into what hedge funds are thinking, particularly hedge fund thought as a group as we can see where the industry thinks there is more value to be found in the market on a sector-by-sector basis. Looking through the 13Fs that have been filed so far, for example, we can see that one of the most-bought stocks last quarter was social network Facebook (FB). Some big names decided to initiate and add to their positions in the company last quarter, including Stephen Mandel's Lone Pine Capital, which boosted its position by 73% and owned 6.7 million shares in Facebook at the end of the fourth quarter. Despite the bank's involvement in the 1MDB scandal, Goldman Sachs (GS) also proved popular with hedge fund managers in the fourth quarter of 2018. eBay Inc. (EBAY) was another popular company. As I have already covered, Seth Klarman (Trades, Portfolio)'s Baupost initiated a stake in the online auction site during the fourth quarter, worth a total of $600 million.

GOOG GOOGL +1 more GOOG GOOGL AAPL

It's no secret Alphabet(NASDAQ: GOOG)(NASDAQ: GOOGL) subsidiary Google pays a lot of money to remain the default search engine across Apple(NASDAQ: AAPL) devices. With Apple releasing more details on its services business with its latest earnings report, it's worth taking another look at its revenue from Google and how that might affect both sales growth and gross income from the segment going forward. Apple noted the primary factor in services revenue growth last year was licensing revenue, like what it gets from Google. It noted the same thing in its first 10-Q filing of 2019. So, it seems Apple will see more steady growth from Google for the next few quarters.

Health tech is so old-fashioned that Google had to adapt its cloud service to work with fax machines

GOOG GOOGL

Health tech is so old-fashioned that Google had to adapt its cloud service to work with fax machines. Last year at the HIMSS health care conference, former Google CEO and chairman Eric Schmidt noted that health care is still in the "stone age," and is reliant on fax machines and pagers. At the company's booth, attendees spotted a demo for a new health service that involves faxing medical information to Google Drive, the company's cloud storage service. "Every hospital, no matter how small, has a fax machine, so it's the safest and easiest way to get the information you need," said Nate Gross, a physician and the co-founder of Doximity, a start-up that came up with a product called DocFax that lets doctors send faxes without a physical fax machine, told CNBC. As a result, health care is the only industry that still relies on such outdated technology.
