Kingstown Capital Files 13D on Aerojet Rocketdyne

Michael Blitzer's hedge fund firm Kingstown Capital has filed a 13D with the SEC regarding shares of Aerojet Rocketdyne (AJRD).  Per the filing, Kingstown now owns 5.5% of the company with 3.5 million shares.

This is up slightly from the 3.4 million shares they owned at the end of the second quarter.  The 13D filing contains the standard boilerplate that they purchased shares because they thought it was undervalued and they may talk to management from time to time.
