Bill Ackman has dumped his stake in Nike after making about $100 million, The Wall Street Journal’s David Benoit reported on Thursday.
Pershing Square, the hedge fund Ackman runs, disclosed a passive stake in a January regulatory filing. The stake totaled 5.836 million shares according to Bloomberg data, and had been acquired during the fourth quarter.
Nike shares have climbed nearly 4% this year.
Unlike some other investments Ackman has made, the Nike stake was passive, meaning he didn’t buy it to push for executive or strategic changes at the firm.
The apparel maker is set to report earnings after the market closes on Thursday.
