Daniel Loeb's Third Point hedge fund held a 1.64% direct interest in Sony (SNE) at the end of September, a regulatory filing from today shows.

The activist investor has said in the past that it controls 7% directly or under different names. It was unclear from the filing whether Third Point's total stake has changed.

Loeb has been trying to force Sony to spin off its entertainment business, but the company has rejected his demands.
