The tiger cub sold 5.42 million shares of the retailer in the three month period ending on Spetember 30. At the same time the hedge fund took profits on Herbalife Ltd.

Tiger Consumer sells JCP, pockets profit from Herbalife

The other famous stakeholder in J.C. Penney Company, Inc. (JCP) who also exited the entire position was Bill Ackman’s Pershing Square Capital. The fund sold an 18% position in the company at a major loss. Vornado Realty Trust also sold its stake in the retailer at $13 a share in last quarter. Vornado held 13 million shares of JCP.

McCormack was not impressed with Ackman’s short attack on Herbalife Ltd. (HLF) last year, as he noted in his quarterly letter. His hedge fund has maintained a long position in the company since before Ackman presented his bearish thesis on the nutrition supplements company. It seems the fund pocketed some profits on the long bet in the last quarter, as Herbalife shares rose from $45 to $70 in the three month period.
