Einhorn's Greenlight Adds Google Shares, Apple Calls
David Einhorn's Greenlight Capital added shares of Google (NASDAQ: GOOG), the world's largest provider of Internet search services, to its stable of holdings in the fourth quarter of 2012, according to a 13F filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The filing was made public Thursday after the close of U.S. markets.
Greenlight held 63,000 shares of Google at the end of the fourth quarter, according to the filing. The hedge fund also held 275,000 call options in Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) at the end of the quarter, the filing indicates.
Einhorn is pushing Apple to issue preferred stock with a dividend as a way of deploying some of the iPad maker's massive $137 billion cash hoard. Greenlight held just over 1.3 million shares of Apple at the end of last year, about what it held at the end of the third quarter.
