Ackman Investing: 9 Companies Pershing Square Bought


8. J. C. Penney Company, Inc. ( JCP, Earnings, Analysts, Financials): Through its subsidiary, J. C. Penney Corporation, Inc., operates department stores in the United States and Puerto Rico. Market cap at $3.8B, most recent closing price at $17.36. Representing 11% of holdings, J.C. Penny shares are not performing well, as the company looks for ways to stem a decline in sales


9. Procter & Gamble Co. ( PG, Earnings, Analysts, Financials): Provides consumer packaged goods in the United States and internationally. Market cap at $190.25B, most recent closing price at $69.58.

During the Value Investing Congress, Ackman hinted he held a short position in a company, but did not mention what it was. Investors should recognize that any of the long positions above could be used as a hedge against his bearish plays.
