Fairpointe Capital Discloses A 7.2% Passive Stake In Time
Time Inc (NYSE: TIME)'s stock is up about 0.8 percent on Thursday, after investment manager Fairpointe Capital LLC disclosed an increase in its exposure to the company.
According to a Schedule 13G form filed with the SEC, the firm run by Ms. Thyra Emmy Zerhusen and Mr. Robert Samuel Burnstine, increased its stake in Time by 7.7 percent in late-December. It now owns more than 7.85 million shares of the company’s Common Stock, which represent 7.2 percent of the total shares outstanding.
Unlike Fairpointe, JPMorgan Chase got rid of some of its Time stock recently. On Monday, the firm disclosed an 8.4 percent reduction in its bet on the company. Nonetheless, its ownership of 8.9 million shares still suggests that it is more bullish than bearish on the company.
