SAC now owns 3.2 million Domino's shares, scooping them up just two weeks before the Super Bowl—undoubtedly one of Domino's busiest days.

SAC said its stake was a passive investment.
The purchase comes exactly five years after the New York Post chose to report the momentous news that Cohen bought a pizza pie from an East 33rd Street pizzeria, paying with his American Express "black card."
