DreamWorks investor cashes in

From Times Wire Services

Paul Allen, the billionaire co-founder of Microsoft Corp., sold $35.3 million in shares of DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc., dropping to its sixth-largest shareholder.

Allen sold 1.17 million shares this week for $30.22 to $30.44 each, according to a regulatory filing. He still owns 3.07 million shares of the Glendale-based company.

DreamWorks Animation is trading at its highest level since November after it reported first-quarter profit and revenue last month that beat analysts' estimates.
