American Woodmark Co. (NASDAQ:AMWD) recently made headlines as WCM Investment Management LLC reduced its holdings in the company by almost 12%. According to the Securities and Exchange Commission’s filing, WCM Investment Management LLC now owns approximately 2.55% of American Woodmark. This move demonstrates the ever-evolving landscape of the investment market, where it is not uncommon for investors to adjust their positions based on developing situations.
Prior to this development, American Woodmark released its quarterly earnings data on Tuesday, February 28th which revealed a $1.46 EPS for the quarter.
