Ryanair shares rose 2.85%

Ryanair Holdings PLC (LON:RYA) shares gained nearly 3% in early Tuesday deals as it was revealed that a US-based value investment fund acquired a noteworthy stake in the company.

The budget airline, in a stock market statement, informed investors that Harris Associates had taken a 3.07% stake, with the 3% reporting threshold being crossed last week.

This morning, Ryanair shares were up 40 cents or 2.85% to trade at €14.28.
