REUTERS/Jason Cohn Activist investor Nelson Peltz, who runs Trian Fund Management, filed his 13F with the SEC.  During the second quarter ended June 30, Trian snapped up a large stake in  Du Pont E I De Nemours & Co.  The fund owned  5,778,403 shares in the second quarter, the filing shows.  Back in July at the D elivering Alpha conference , CNBC’s Andrew Ross Sorkin asked him if he had a stake in Du Pont. Peltz wouldn’t answer him though.  “You think DuPont. You think paint,” he said at the conference. Other new positions in Trian’s portfolio include Sotheby’s and GNC Holdings.  

Trian also owns Wendys, Tiffany, Family Dollar Stores, Legg Mason, State Street, Ingersoll-Rand, Lazard, Mondelez and PepsiCo.
