$SPLS announced plans to buy $ODP. Starboard owns 9% of $ODP. Learn more Ownership trends during our webcast on 2/10: http://ow.ly/IzlCP
In the past 15 years, hedge funds have grown from around 1% of the U.S. equity market to over six times that. With that growth has come increasing consternation about their aggregate impact on equity markets. More often than not, hedge funds are singled out as villains when things go wrong.

"Wolf pack” proxy access tactics are now a headline topic, but FactSet has tracked 46 campaigns dating back to 2003 that involved multiple parties but no 13D filer—whether individually or as a group. In 34 of those campaigns, the dissident group sought at least one board seat, and the group succeeded in 14 campaigns. In six of those campaigns, the dissident sought multiple board seats and won all of the seats. http://ow.ly/Ibdy7
Proxy access may be much more than another checkbox on the shareholder rights scorecard.

This week, Microsoft completed the largest U.S. corporate-bond sale this year, selling $10.75 billion in debt with maturities of five to 40 years. Microsoft is one of the few US firms with a triple-A credit rating, reflecting strong profitability and a light debt load. Companies are taking advantage of attractive borrowing costs, while investors are seeking out securities that offer higher yields than U.S. debt. FactSet's DCS Interim data provides the most up-to-date view of what has changed in the debt capital structure since Microsoft's last filing date.

For NOL-protected companies, the companies that were activist targets after adopting NOL protections outperformed the index at a higher rate (39%) over the long-term than the NOL-protected companies that were never an activist target (29%). Whether the activist brought new ideas to management or influenced management to articulate a clear turnaround plan, companies with NOL-assets saw long-term value from activism despite the limitations to changes in ownership. http://ow.ly/IvcZM
Using FactSet Alpha Testing, we compared the performance of an event-driven portfolio based on the date a company changed its shareholder rights to protect NOLs to the Russell 3000 as a performance benchmark.
