Hedge fund sheds Sonesta shares

Bizjournals.com – After watching Sonesta International Hotels Corp. lose roughly 70 percent of its stock market value over the past 18 months, a Connecticut hedge fund has shed roughly a third of its holdings in the Massachusetts-based hotel operator.

In a recent regulatory filing, Mercury Real Estate Advisors, based in Greenwich, Conn., said it sold around 23,400 shares of Sonesta stock (Nasdaq: SNSTA) between Jan. 20 and Feb. 10, bringing its total ownership in the company to 206,048 shares. Those holdings equate to around 5.6 percent of Sonesta’s common stock outstanding.
