Highland Capital was founded by James Dondero, who has been the acting CEO of the company since its founding. The company just filed its recent 13F and found out that it is standing at a net worth of $ 3.42 billion. This implies a decrease from the previous portfolio value which was at $4.91 billion. The filling represented a big percentage of the company’s property that is listed in the United States. It has however been hard to establish Highland Capital’s shorts and expenses. This could have brought some slight alteration to the overall filling made by the company’s worth. This company has been making positive contributions towards the financial investment. It has had some impact on the US stock exchange and in the general economy.
James Dondero, who is commonly referred to as Jim, has been very instrumental in the growth of this company. He has seen the funding of various new purchases which the company made in the financial year 2015. The investments include Amazon Com Inc, Eagle Pharmaceutical Inc and Danaher Corp Del amongst others.
The hedge fund was able to increase its positions in the American Airls Group Inc by 60%. In the Patterson Companies Inc, the company was able to raise its positions by 16% which took the total share in this company to $89 million. James Dondero has been oscillating between selling the company’s stocks and buying others. The idea behind this is to keep the company on the profitable side of the business by selling the stocks when they are much needed in the market and buying others that are not in big demand during that time of purchasing.
These holdings are the American Airls Group, Salesforce Com Inc and Ishares Tr. They contribute 13.5% of US listed securities of this company. Highland capital management was able to lift the information technology sector by a bigger percentage as compared to other sectors. Jim is still expecting to lead the company in making other acquisitions which will earn it a better place in the industry.
