Lampert's RBS hedge fund cuts stake in AutoNation
(Bloomberg) -- Edward Lampert, the billionaire chairman and CEO of Sears Holdings Corp., reported that he and his hedge fund reduced a stake in AutoNation Inc., the country's largest auto retailer.
RBS Partners LP cut its stake in AutoNation Inc. by 13.5 million shares to 34.6 million shares valued at about $1.37 billion as of Dec. 31, according to a filing today with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
