David Einhorn Discloses New NCR Position

Due to activity on May 14th, 2010, David Einhorn's hedge fund Greenlight Capital has disclosed a 5.1% ownership stake in NCR (NCR) with 8,234,065 shares. Einhorn's firm filed a form 13G with the SEC after market close today and this marks a brand new position for them as they did not own a stake when we looked at Greenlight's portfolio. This means that they've assembled this position over the past two and a half months.

Greenlight has returned an impressive 22% annualized since inception and that should provide you plenty of reason to track them. In terms of other recent portfolio activity, we also posted up two of Greenlight's position changes. To learn more about Einhorn's investment process, we highly recommend reading his book: Fooling Some of the People All of the Time.

Taken from Google Finance, NCR is "provides technology and services that help businesses connect, interact and transact with their customers.
