10:45 EDTBP, APC, MU, AAPL, CMG, GMBP, Anadarko advance after Einhorn discloses stakes
Shares of BP (BP) and Anadarko (APC), which produce oil and gas, are climbing after David Einhorn's Greenlight Capital disclosed that it had obtained stakes in both companies. WHAT'S NEW: Greenlight Capital, a hedge fund founded by well-known investor David Einhorn, accumulated "medium size" stakes in BP and Anadarko last quarter, Einhorn wrote in a letter to investors dated January 21. Anadarko's stock is cheap compared with its peers, he contended. Noting that the company is involved in a legal battle stemming from its 2006 acquisition of oil and gas assets from Kerr-McGee, Einhorn predicted that Anadarko will have to pay $5 billion in penalties related to the case, rather than the maximum potential damages of $14 billion. As for BP, Einhorn contends that the company is worth $70 per share. As a result, it can create significant value by selling some of its assets and using the proceeds to buy back some of its own stock, he believes. BP has been taking this approach, and the market should begin to appreciate the company more as its legal issues subside, Einhorn wrote. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Greenlight also added a large position in flash memory maker Micron (MU), Einhorn reported. The hedge fund maintained long positions in Apple (AAPL), GM (GM), and Marvell (MRVL), and short positions in Chipotle (CMG) and US Steel (X), Einhorn indicated. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, BP added about 1.1% to trade near $49, while Anadarko advanced 2.75% to $83.42.
