Gabelli sold the natural and organic food company Annies after holding a 9% stake in the company to the tune of 1.5 million, according to Insider Monkey.

Mario Gabelli founded GAMCO in 1976 and it currently has $50 billion funds under management. The fund specializes in small-cap stocks and although it has gone public, Gabelli has a 50% stake in the fund.

Jerome L Simon’s Lonestar management also increased its stake, with 3.95 million shares and  James Dondero’s Highland Capital Management has 3.16 million shares.
