Voltari Surges


Voltari Corp. climbed +12% today and is up +27% year-to-date. A provider of digital marketing and advertising solutions, Voltari is among Carl Icahn’s holdings. The billionaire owns nearly 15% of the company.

Energy XXI Tumbles

Energy XXI Ltd. tumbled -9.43% today, largely as a result of retreating oil prices. Zacks suggests the stock could be positioned for a slump – a bad sign for billionaire shareholders Leon Cooperman and George Soros.

Organovo Holdings dipped -7.13%, putting the stock’s year-to-date loss at nearly -50%. Short interest in the firm seems to be on the rise as well. Chase Coleman’s Tiger Global has a small stake in the development-stage company.

Altisource Portfolio Solutions fell -5.92%. Leon Cooperman has a noteworthy stake in the firm, though he recently unloaded some of his shares. ASPS shares have lost -60% in 2015.
