Thomas E. Claugus’ GMT Capital Corp Boosted its Position in $AXL

Thomas E. Claugus’ GMT Capital Corp increased its passive common stock position in American Axle & Manufacturing Holdings, Inc. (AXL) to 3.89 million shares, giving it 5.2% ownership stake. In 2011 the stock showed continuous downtrends, and had just reached its 52-week’s lowest point on Sep 21th. GMT might have regarded this as an opportunity.

AXL later rallied and now is trading at $7.13, which is still much lower than its original price level in January.
