Bill Ackman’s Pershing Square Took 12.2% Activist Stake in $CP

Bill Ackman’s Pershing Square revealed on October 28th that the firm now holds about 20.66 million shares in Canadian Pacific Railway Ltd (CP), giving a 12.2% activist stake ownership. Bill Ackman is expected to engage in the discussion with the management, and he believes the investment in CP is undervalued and attractive. Files showed Bill Ackman did not have a CP position in the second quarter. He began his purchases in common shares and call options after September 23rd. CP realized strong uptrend recently and is up by more than 30% in October. The stock surged by 6.8% after the filing on Friday and is now trading at $63.40.

According to Insider Monkey’s hedge fund tracking list, six hedge funds had small positions in CP in the second quarter. Daniel Bubis’ Tetrem Capital Management had 1.28 million shares; Jim Simons’ Renaissance Technologies had 392 thousand shares at that time.

Bill Ackman is a long term value investor, taking advantage of short term downward moves in prices. He is particularly successful at special situations investments. William Ackman’s Pershing Square has a very concentrated portfolio. Bill Ackman’s returns have displayed option-like characteristics in 2009 and 2010. His General Growth Properties investment is almost as big as John Paulson’s subprime shorts. In May 2009, he recommended GGP stock at the Ira Sohn Conference and the stock returned more than 1000% since then. As a result of that investment, Ackman had a great 2010, returning 29.7%. This is very important because one might be imitating 90% of Ackman’s holdings and getting below market returns while Ackman’s clients enjoy 30% returns.
