Ron Burkle appears to be preparing for a fight with John Malone over the price Liberty Media (LCAPA) is offering for Barnes & Noble (BKS), disclosing in an SEC filing that he bought another 603,000 shares of the bookseller at just under $18.49/share on Monday. The move brings the stake held by Burkle's Yucaipa to 11.9M shares, giving him more firepower to challenge Liberty's $17/share bid.
