5 Nelson Peltz Holdings Attracting Short Sellers
Joel Kornblau - Wednesday, April 10, 10:52 AM

An examination of the most recent short interest data revealed these five Nelson Peltz stocks with particularly high short interest, as measured by "days to cover." This metric is just one way to look at short data, but this is a metric we here at Holdings Channel find particularly useful because it considers both the total shares short and the average daily volume of shares traded. The number of shares short is then compared to the average daily volume, in order to calculate the total number of trading days (at the average volume) it would take to close out all of the open short positions if every share traded represented a short position being closed. So for example we found that Sysco Corp (SYY) now has 4.75 days to cover.

Looking through the stocks held by Nelson Peltz for the most recent reporting period, we found the following five stand-outs with the highest levels of short interest as measured by the number of days to cover. The first column is the Nelson Peltz holding, the second column is the number of days to cover, the third column is the number of shares held at Trian Fund Management at last report, and the final column is the total number of shares short (in this way we can compare "Nelson Peltz vs. The Shorts" as far as the relative positions).

Nelson Peltz HoldingDays To CoverTrian Fund Management SharesShort Interest
SYY 4.75 28,303,910 11,051,050
PPG 4.27 7,009,412 6,660,131
WEN 4.23 31,630,629 17,310,219
BK 3.55 16,139,123 15,744,905.0
PG 2.97 37,910,766 22,811,535

As you can see, Sysco Corp (SYY) is an interesting situation, as are PPG Industries Inc (PPG), Wendy's Co (WEN), Bank of New York Mellon Corp (BK), and Procter & Gamble Company (PG) — why are short sellers attracted to these names, while Nelson Peltz has the opposite view (i.e. Trian Fund Management is long those stocks)? It could simply be a matter of differing viewpoint on valuation of each given stock, or there could be fundamental disagreements over what is happening at the business level and whether recent developments are positive or negative for that company's future success. Following quarterly 13F filings to keep track of Nelson Peltz stock picks is warranted for investors interested in keeping track of what Nelson Peltz does with these positions (adds, reduces, or exits).
