    An oldie but a goodie, SODI. Gobs of cash, profitable business and 2 activist groups. I'll also throw in DAEG and JCDAF. Solid activists behind each.

    For those that dabble in ultra nano-cap, Winland Electronics (OTCPK:WELX). Also, Transworld Corporation (OTCQB:TWOC).

    I like evidence based investing. I found a paper on activist investing:


    My own question was whether it is ok to buy every 13d with clear activist intentions, or proxy fight, on a statistical basis. The paper answers this question, but it is quite a complicated read. In the end I wasn't sure the data in the paper matches the conclusions. It seems the conclusions are too pessimistic.


    Has anyone read this paper, and if so, any thoughts? Has anyone come across any other good papers on the returns of following activist investing?

    Found a 13D fund:


    The fact sheet gives a reason why most fund managers don't use this strategy that much: lack of permanent capital.
