The Week of Activist Investors

I try to keep you up to date with the most interesting “activist” situations. But, this week the activism is coming far too fast for me to keep up with.

There’s an excellent resource called Value Investing News that can help.

The latest headlines there are full of activist situations.

I’ll do my best to follow the three most interesting ones:

Topps and the Eisner offer

Sardar Biglari and Friendly’s

The coup at Take-Two

As promised, I’ll have a longer follow-up post on Topps (TOPP) for you soon. I’m sure other bloggers will be writing about the other two situations.

Until then, the best way to follow these stories is by going to Value Investing News.
