Trading Places is Stockhead’s weekly recap of substantial holder movements focusing on fund managers.
Substantial shareholders are shareholders holding 5 per cent or more of a company’s shares and these can be directors, individual investors or institutional investors.
Shareholders are required to announce to the exchange when they cross above or below the 5 per cent threshold and any change in their holdings while they remain above 5 per cent.
Gut health focused Anatara Lifesciences (ASX:ANR) has well and truly put a tough couple of years behind it, soaring from 19c in December to 34c yesterday.
It all began with solid pre-clinical data suggesting its dietary supplement reduces gut inflammation. It anticipates beginning a human trial next quarter.
RTL Group Investments bought another $50,000 in shares, taking its stake to 11 per cent. This company belongs to Robert Lederer, the son of Financial Review rich lister Paul Lederer and a notable angel investor in his own right.
The Range International (ASX:RAN) directors who went in big last week were joined by Mauritius-based Black Marlin Fund, which now owns 6 per cent.

After a shaky start to listed life, Open Learning (ASX:OLL) has recovered and sits 35 per cent higher than its IPO price.
Regal Funds Management cashed out some of its holdings and how holds only 4.75 per cent. Regal also sold some of its holdings in gold explorer Red5 (ASX:RED) and Wellness & Beauty Solutions (ASX:WNB).
UUV Aquabotix’s (ASX:UUV) biggest shareholder, the Bergen Special Opportunity Fund, sold its 17 per cent stake this week. Having listed nearly three years ago, UUV fell from 20c to just 0.4c. Ouch.
