Citadel is included in a very short list of hedge funds to disclose ownership of Facebook stock shares in the quarter. The company’s botched IPO, and subsequent drop in share price, has left many investors out millions of dollars. It can only be assumed that Citadel also took a major hit on its Facebook shares. As the initial lock up is set to end soon, many Facebook insiders are preparing to unload their shares, before they lose any more money on the tanking stock.
