Why You Should Get Hyped About Churchill Downs, Inc. (CHDN), Cypress Semiconductor Corporation (CY), & Two More Stocks

Let’s take a look at the fund’s position in a company that runs clearing houses, listing venues, and regulated exchanges, Intercontinental Exchange Inc (NYSE:ICE). In the June quarter, Three Bays Capital decided to lower its stake in the company by 39%, to 367,346 shares, which were worth $94.03 million at the end of the quarter. Seeing that the company brought in a positive return of 5.6% during the third quarter, the lowering of the stake may be somewhat of a disappointment for the firm, though a larger stock actually would’ve lowered its returns, considering how well its other stocks performed.

At the end of June, a total of 49 of the hedge funds in our system were bullish on this stock, up by 2 from the end of March. According to publicly available hedge fund and institutional investor holdings data compiled by Insider Monkey, Viking Global, managed by Andreas Halvorsen, held the biggest position ($290.1 million) in Intercontinental Exchange Inc (NYSE:ICE) among those funds. The second most bullish fund manager was William von Mueffling of Cantillon Capital Management ($265.9 million). Some other members of the smart money that held long positions included Ricky Sandler’s Eminence Capital, Jonathon Jacobson’s Highfields Capital Management, and Panayotis Takis Sparaggis’s Alkeon Capital Management.
