This is a 9.09% decrease in value of holdings but considering that the stock price declined 12.88% from January 2, 2015 through March 31, 2015, there was a net addition in the size of holdings among the funds we track, in terms of shares, which shows some bullishness, even in the face of the declines.

Sitting on the number 2 spot is Crestwood Capital Management, managed by Michael R. Weisberg, which held a $33.3 million position; 4.5% of its 13F portfolio was allocated to the company.

Alexander Mitchell’s Scopus Asset Management, mentioned above, also initiated a $20.4 million position during the quarter.
