Activist hedge fund Harbinger Capital Partners yesterday sought to shoot down rumors that it was liquidating some of its high-profile positions.
Philip Falcone, who runs the Alabama hedge fund manager, said selling by his firm was not behind the double-digit losses posted yesterday by Cablevision Systems, Cleveland-Cliffs Inc., Media General or The New York Times Co., all of which have been the target of activist campaigns led by Harbinger in the last year.

Falcone said Harbinger remains bullish, although he added that the firm’s portfolio has changed since the 13 F filing.
