Tredegar Corporation

Tredegar is a small-cap manufacturer of plastic films and aluminum extrusions. About a month ago, Gabelli disclosed a marked increase in his bet on the company. Now, a 6.69 percent surge in his stake has taken his position to 5,691,168 shares, representing 17.42 percent of the total shares outstanding. It should be noted that this figure reflects the aggregate amount of shares beneficially owned by Gabelli (including those held by Gabelli Funds, GAMCO, Teton Advisors, GSI, GBL and the Gabelli Foundation).

Also noteworthy is the fact that GAMCO Investors et al. is now the largest institutional investor of record in Tredegar. Other firms bullish on the stock are Dimensional Fund Advisors, which last disclosed ownership of 2,735,540 shares, worth more than $60 million, and Jim Simons’ Renaissance Technologies, which almost doubled its exposure to the company over the second quarter of the year, taking it to 42,500 shares.
