SAC Capital Advisors revealed a significantly lower position in Sunedison Inc (NYSE:SUNE), a global company developing and selling solar power and renewable energy solutions. Currently, the fund owns 525,000 shares – 0.20% of the company’s common stock outstanding, down from its previous ownership of more than 14.20 million shares.

SAC Capital now holds 386,000 shares in the former – roughly a third of the previously owned  nearly 950,000, and 307,000 shares in the latter - approximately a fourth of the 1.30 million owned earlier.

Finally, a recent 13G filing shows that SAC Capital decreased its exposure to Vitamin Shoppe Inc (NYSE:VSI) - a U.S. retailer of nutritional supplements. The position now amounts to 152,000 shares, which represent 0.50% of the company’s total common stock. Before, the fund owned slightly more than 1.80 million shares in the retailer.
