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.
