Soros boosts Lehman stake

Reuters – Billionaire investor George Soros hiked his stake in Wall Street firm Lehman Brothers to 9.5 million shares as of June 30 from 10,000 shares, according to a U.S. regulatory filing on Thursday.

Soros disclosed the quarter-over-quarter increase in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Soros raised his stake in Lehman ahead of a turbulent month for the investment bank, whose shares plunged in mid-July amid a broader sell-off in financials sparked by concern about government-backed mortgage companies Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

Lehman shares rose 63 cents, or 4.1 percent, to close at $16.20 before the news. They are down 18 percent since the end of June and off 75 percent so far this year.
