    Vanguard files SC 13G...Just as Blackrock did

    Vanguard is now officially in control of over 5% of the outstanding shares of ACTG. This on top of
    Blackrock making the same filing earlier in January. This is just more confirmation that Institutional
    holders see value in Acacia Research....Now if the market will just follow along and push up the share price.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

      • I added up the change in institutional holdings (over some time period ending 12/31/2012) and got -1,475,695. That is, institutions were net sellers over that time period. Not surprising, really, looking at the chart, and not really that bad.

        New Positions: 2,430,274
        Increased Positions: 8,915,865
        Decreased Positions: 7,932,702
        Sold Out Positions: 4,889,132

        I remember November 19th, 2012 when someone had the urge to dump about 1 to 2M shares and I tripled my position. That was a gift! Thanks to whichever institution lost their nerve on that day. :)

        Even though institutional ownership is already pretty high, I'm still not so sure that very many people really see the potential here. I think this company is going to stun Wall Street to death over the next few quarters. It is such a sleeper.

        Sentiment: Strong Buy
