WENDY'S GETS SECOND INVESTOR

An investment company that tried unsuccessfully to acquire Circuit City Stores says it has purchased shares giving it a 6.1 percent stake in Wendy's International. It's the second time this week an investor has disclosed buying a large amount of Wendy's shares.

Boston-based Highfields Capital Management LP said in a federal regulatory filing that it bought 6.9 million shares of the hamburger chain in March.

On Tuesday, Pershing Square Capital Management LP in New York said in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing that it had acquired stock and options that could give it a 9.3 percent stake in Wendy's.
