ValueAct Capital Trims Adobe Systems Stake Again

Jeff Ubben's activist investment firm ValueAct Capital has filed a Form 4 with the SEC regarding its position in Adobe Systems (ADBE).  Per the filing, ValueAct trimmed its ADBE position on July 14th-16th.

In total, ValueAct sold 1.693 million shares at prices of $82.11, $82.06, and $82.45.  After these sales, ValueAct still owns just over 14 million shares of Adobe. 

This is the second time ValueAct has trimmed its Adobe stake in recent months.  In fact, they've been cutting their exposure to the name gradually since 2013 when they owned as much as 25 million shares.
