Icahn Enterprises L.p. (IEP): Billionaire Carl Icahn’s Icahn Capital Raises Stake

According to a newly-amended 13D filing with the US SEC, Carl Icahn‘s Icahn’s Capital LP owns 120.50 million depositary units representing limited partner interests of Icahn Enterprises LP (NASDAQ:IEP), which account for 89.75% of the company’s total amount of depositary units. This is slightly more than 117.72 million depositary units Icahn’s Capital LP owned at the end of February, as revealed in a previous 13D filing. In a Form 4 filing, Icahn Capital reported the acquisition of some 2.77 million as a “payment-in-kind” dividend, which represented a forgone value of $60.88 per unit.

Icahn Enterprises L.P is a holding company that owns a plethora of subsidiaries that are operating in fields of Energy, Food Packaging, Investments, Real Estate, Automotive, to name a few. The company’s shares have lost 33% in the last 12 months, mainly due to its significant exposure to the energy sector, which tanked following a drop in oil prices.

Heading into 2016, six funds tracked by Insider Monkey were bullish on Icahn Enterprises LP (NASDAQ:IEP), including Icahn Capital. Murray Stahl Horizon Asset Management  reported the second-largest position, worth $220.6 million. Other investors long the stock are Jim Simons’s Renaissance Technologies, George Hall’s Clinton Group and Ken Griffin’s Citadel Investment Group.

On the other hand, investors who lost the interest in Icahn Enterprises LP (NASDAQ:IEP) include  Matthew Hulsizer’s PEAK6 Capital Management, which dropped the largest stake valued at $800,000 in stock, and Roger Ibbotson’s Zebra Capital Management that dumped about $700,000 worth of shares.
