Corvex Management Takes American Realty Capital Stake

Keith Meister's activist hedge fund Corvex Management has filed a 13D with the SEC regarding American Realty Capital (ARCP).  Per the filing, Corvex now owns 7.1% of the company with over 64.7 million shares (with 56.77 million of those shares underlying call options).  This is a new position for the hedge fund.

The activist filing indicates that Corvex has met with company management and want to add members to the board.  The filing was required due to activity on December 18th.
