BOSTON (TheStreet) -- Tiger Global Management's hedge fund shuffled its holdings in online media stocks in the first quarter, including initiating a 4.8% portfolio stake in movie-streaming company Netflix (NFLX - Get Report), which has more than doubled in the past year.

Tiger Global also added to holdings of cable network and content provider Viacom ( VIA.B) and Internet retailer Amazon.com ( AMZN - Get Report), and cut back on Liberty Media tracking stock Liberty Capital ( LCAPA) and multimedia firm Cablevision Systems ( CVC).

Tiger Global raised its stake in its largest holding, Apple ( AAPL - Get Report), the maker of the iPad and iPhone, by 282,000 shares, bringing its portfolio value to $493 million. That number includes share-price appreciation as well as the additional shares.

Apple is now 12% of the portfolio, up from 10% at year-end, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Apple's shares are up 5.6% this year, but have quintupled over five years.

Assets of the New York-based hedge fund firm, run in part by Charles "Chase" Coleman III, grew 14% in the first quarter to $4.1 billion. The fund holds 33 stocks. In contrast, the benchmark S&P 500 Index rose 5.4%.

The fund trimmed its stake in Liberty Capital by 888,000 shares, worth about $26 million, but the company still makes up 4.8% of the fund. Liberty Capital's shares are up 37% this year and 105% over the past 12 months, so there may have been some profit taking.

Tiger Global also cut back on its Cablevision Systems stake by 619,000 shares. The company now accounts for 4.8% of the portfolio, worth $197 million. Cablevision's shares are up 2.5% this year and 43% over the past 12 months.
