Fortescue Metals Group chairman Andrew Forrest has increased his stake in the pure-play iron ore miner from 32.46 per cent to 33.87 per cent after buying 3.95 million shares in late October. Fortescue’s shares closed at a 10-week high of $4.11 on 1 November, and the stock has gained 13 per cent since Forrest’s on-market share transaction. Fortescue has also repurchased about $7m worth of share since it announced a $500 million share buyback in mid-October.
