nice to see we are finally waken from the slumber of the last few months.
It is a very high percentage of ownership, it would be interesting to see when they started to acquire a shareholding (Yahoo finance does not even list them as an institutional shareholder).

If a company lists on the NYSE it must abide by it's rules, and one of the most basic rules is that all material shareholders must be publically declared within a certain (and very strict) timeframe. That is why I thought it possibly significant that Capital's shareholding might be fairly recent and, if so, that it was a pretty serious foray into CRH; investment companys generally don't suddenly appear and take a $2.5 billion stake in a company where they have no apparent prior holding.
