Ben Golub, the 47-year-old CEO of a startup called Docker, told the packed crowd how surprised he was that his unpolished new product has become such a big deal to Microsoft while still a toddler: “It occasionally stumbles; it occasionally spits up and keeps those closest to it up at night.”

    These are the top trades–ten buys and ten sells–of the world’s richest active hedge fund stock pickers. To compile the list, we looked at the U.S. trades of billionaire hedge fund managers in the half-year ending Mar. 31.

We included picks only if at least six top managers agreed–we excluded some billionaire hedgies, such as Carl Icahn and Chase Coleman, because they didn’t follow the crowd.
