Jennison Associates is on a shopping spree. Last week we reported a large biotech purchase by Jennison. Today we will report Jennison’s 600K share purchase of Ovascience Inc. (NASDAQ:OVAS). The stock was trading at $10 at the end of last year and lost nearly 50% of its value by February 3rd. Ovascience Inc. recouped all of its losses since then. Jennison Associates picked up 600K shares of OVAS during this roller coaster ride.
Hedge funds collectively usually own about 5% of an average stock’s outstanding shares. This number is closer to 20% with Ovascience Inc. Orbis Management had the largest stake (7.6%) in Ovascience at the end of 2015. Boston based Adage Capital also held a stake above 7%.
The details of Jennison’s filing can be seen below:
