Steve Mandel's hedge fund firm Lone Pine Capital has filed a 13G with the SEC regarding their position in Michael Kors (KORS).  Per the filing, Lone Pine now owns 5.5% of the company with over 11.2 million shares.

They've almost doubled their stake recently as this marks an increase in their position of over 5.1 million shares since the end of 2013.  The filing was made due to activity on April 10th.
