Important Note: One of the primary uses of the 13D/G filings is to evaluate the ability of a firm to control a company (ie, the "beneficial ownership"). To that end, firms are required to report not just direct holdings in companies, but indirect holdings that they control. For investment firms, these indirect holdings can include shares in funds they manage, advisory accounts, and in the case of activist campaigns, pledged votes. Therefore, share counts listed in 13D/G filings can differ significantly than share counts listed in 13F filings.

13F Filings

The Security, Class, and CUSIP columns in the table below are shown exactly as filed by the investor. We do our best to track continuity of investments through acquisitions, and this will be reflected in the table as changes in names and cusips.

In addition to descriptive data, performance of the investment is shown over time. To calculate quarterly performance, we first calculate cost basis of the shares purchased during the quarter, then use that to calculate gross profit. Quarterly return is Gross Profit / Starting Portfolio value.

Note that cost basis is calculated and stored in thousands, so small quarterly changes in shares frequently result in a cost basis of zero.
