Ackman Adds GM to Highly Concentrated Portfolio (TGT, KFT, JCP, GM, HHC, C, FO, ADP, GLRE)
William Ackman is well-known as the man behind hedge fund Pershing Square Capital Management, which often makes headlines for its big stakes in and activist stances towards well-known brands.
Looking at Pershing’s U.S.-listed, equity holdings from the end of 2010, Ackman has continued to maintain a narrowly-focused long portfolio. During the quarter, Pershing opened new stakes in General Motors (GM) and real estate developer Howard Hughes (HHC).
Ackman also upped his stakes in bank Citigroup (C), alcohol producer Fortune Brands (FO), and J.C. Penney. Elsewhere, he was trimming his positions in Automatic Data Processing (ADP), Kraft and Target. Ackman famously established a fund that bet exclusively on Target, only to see it drop by nearly -90% in 2008. The fund rebounded somewhat, but Ackman has for the most part been slowly unwinding his Target stake.
Pershing held steady with his stake David Einhorn-controlled reinsurer Greenlight Capital Re (GLRE).
Pro portfolio performance is based on institutions’ top-15 holdings as disclosed in quarter-end filings with the SEC. Pro performance does not take into account additional holdings beyond the top 15 nor does it include positions that are not required to be disclosed by the SEC. As such, Pro portfolio performance should be considered an approximation and not a precise record of how an institution has performed over time.
