Citadel Buys Buffalo Wild Wings, Facebook & BioMarin, Exits Coke

Many of the hedge funds on Wall Street have filed their 13 F forms this week, and Citadel Advisors Llc joins this group. The latest 13F lists over $27billion in assets under management. Not unlike many of the other funds we have already covered, they hold high stakes in companies like Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL),  and Anadarko Petroleum Corporation (NYSE:APC).

Citadel Advisors has placed their top five positions in the portfolio as follows:
Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) holds 1.45% of the overall portfolio, which ranks it number one by percentage. E*Trade Financial Corporation (NASDAQ:ETFC), comes in 2nd, with a 0.81% holding. Altria Group falls into third place, slightly behind E*Trade, with .7%. Anadarko Petroleum is very close in fourth, with .68% of the portfolio holdings. Dicks Sporting Goods finishes out the top five, with .66%.

The top five new positions for Citadel include a couple which could hurt the company. Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ:FB) Cl A Com STK (DE) (PUT) makes up .22% of the overall portfolio, and ranks first Buffalo Wild Wings (NASDAQ:BWLD) follows closely behind, with .21%. BioMarin Pharmaceutical Inc. (NASDAQ:BMRN) holds third with .19% of the overall holdings. Facebook Inc CL A COM STK (DE) (CALL) is the second investment listed with Facebook, and it ranks fourth place, with .18% of hte overall portfolio. The final new position, in the top five for Citadel is Equity Lifestyle Properties, Inc. (NYSE:ELS), which makes up .07% of the company’s holdings.

Citadel also exited several holdings last quarter, and the ones of note are:
Advance Auto Parts Inc., which previously held .44% of the portfolio. Haliburton Company, which held .37% of the company’s portfolio. The  The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE:KO) was another major close out, and it previously made up .16% of the portfolio. Halmont Properties Corporation (CVE:HMT) (PUT) had made up .14% of the portfolio, and was closed last quarter. Halmont Properties Corporation (CVE:HMT) (CALL) also held .14% of the portfolio, and was also exited.

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.
