Levin Capital Now Owns Over 25% of Fluidigm

According to a recent 13D filing with the SEC, John A. Levin‘s Levin Capital Strategies has increased its stake in Fluidigm Corp (NASDAQ:FLDM) to 7.32 million common shares, which account for 25.2% of the company’s outstanding stock. The fund’s stake has been raised from 5.69 million shares, which accounted for 19.6% of the float, as per its previous 13G filing on the company, dated September 30. While the latest filing was on a Form 13D, the fund has not gone activist on the stock, maintaining that its investment remains passive and that its 20% stake necessitated filing a 13D.

Since the beginning of the year, Fluidigm Corp (NASDAQ:FLDM) stock has lost 57.45%. For the second quarter of 2016, Fluidigm disclosed a loss per share of $0.64 and revenue of $28.2 million, worse results than the loss per share of $0.53 and revenue of $28.6 million that it pulled in for the same quarter of the previous year. Recently, Cantor Fitzgerald reiterated its ‘Buy’ rating on Fluidigm Corporation’s stock but lowered its price target on it to $9 from $11.
