If a bidder comes in to offer more than Dollar Tree for Family Dollar, it won't be Dollar General (DG +0.1%), according to Bloomberg. Dollar General reportedly passed on making an over-the-top offer.

    Carl Icahn should be fortunate to take his money and be happy with the 25% return today. I have owned Family Dollar Stores in the past and the only thing that I heard about them was how rotten the stores were. I wish that all of my undervalued stocks should be so fortunate.

    Icahn clearly knows what he is doing.

    Well sometimes it is luck. But a common strategy is to take a beaten down stock; accumulate a position and then make noise about changes. Unfortunately this strategy is not available to the regular investors.
