Two big Healthways investors trim stakes

Two big Healthways shareholders have filed papers updating us on their stakes in the Franklin-based wellness services provider. First up, the Jennison Associates unit of Prudential Financial continued to trim its stake in the fourth quarter. As of Dec. 31, the firm owned almost 1.5 million shares, or 4.2 percent, of Healthways. That's down from 7.6 percent three months earlier and more than 15 percent a year ago. Down in Atlanta, longtime investor Earnest Partners was a big seller in January. The firm this week filed forms showing it owned 7.4 percent of Healthways' shares on Dec. 31 but just 3.5 percent at the end of January. That would suggest it was one of the big sellers when hedge fund manager Steven Cohen's Point72 was buying big the day after the Healthways board said it was looking at its strategic options, including a sale of the company.

Shares of Healthways (Ticker: HWAY) were up slightly Wednesday morning to $21.56. They're up more than 40 percent over the past three months and about 10 percent from the day before the company announced its strategic review.
