Capital Senior Living Corp (CSU): Value Investor Arbiter Partners Backing Up The Truck

Page 1 of 7

We don’t and can’t pay attention to every single hedge fund filing. There are just too many of them. However, we pay extra attention when a well-known value investor starts backing up the truck and loading up. Hedge funds rarely buy more than 10% of a company’s outstanding shares. They usually stop at 9.9% or so because they don’t want to become a company’s insider and be subject to a different regulatory reporting requirements. For example, large shareholders who hold more than 10% of a company’s outstanding shares have to report their transactions within 48 hours because they are considered to be privy of confidential inside information about the company.

So, when a value hedge fund buys more than 10% of a company’s stock, we believe this is a credible buy signal. Paul J. Isaac’s Arbiter Partners Capital Management today disclosed that it now controls 14.16% of Capital Senior Living Corp (NYSE:CSU). The famed value investor owned only 9% of the company’s outstanding shares at the end of September. Below, you can see the detailed list of its most recent transactions which also includes a large call option purchase with a strike price of $25. Capital Senior Living Corp (NYSE:CSU) shares currently trade at $17.38, so Paul Isaac sees a lot of upside potential.
