Earlier in November, BlueMountain Capital attempted the takeover of Chatham Lodging Trust (NYSE:CLDT). The fund offered a bid of $21.50 per share, which, however, was rejected by the company. 

Also a couple of months ago, the fund boosted its exposure in RadNet, Inc. (NASDAQ:RDNT) to 5 million shares from 3 million shares. Another stock in which the fund has a significant stake is Valero Energy Corporation (NYSE:VLO), in which it owns 2.74 million shares, worth $93.42 million.
