At Tuesday’s prices, the sale of 4,587,852 shares would be worth more than $853 million.
The sale was made public in a form known as a 13-F, which all institutional asset managers are required to file after each quarter. Because funds are only required to disclose their current holdings, it’s not clear when or at what price the fund sold off its stake.
Regardless, Tepper likely saw a hefty profit thanks to the appreciation of Apple even in recent months. Since November, when a smaller stake was first disclosed by Appaloosa, the stock has risen 9%. The fund's initial purchase happened some time between July and September, when Apple shares were even lower.
Tuesday’s filings come just hours after Tepper reportedly agreed to buy the Carolina Panthers from team founder Jerry Richardson for $2.2 billion. The purchase is pending a vote at the NFL owners meeting next week in Atlanta.
