Cabela's Incorporated (CAB)

  • Yesterday, 4:55 PM
    • Cabela's (NYSE:CAB) is generating takeover interest at a share price in the $50s, but it may take a much higher number to satisfy certain longtime investors, Bloomberg reports.
    • Even as CAB sales and profit growth have sputtered, shareholders such as London Co. of Virginia and the Matthew 25 Fund see a strong brand with long-term expansion prospects, as well as lucrative credit card business with nearly $5B in loans and real estate holdings worth ~$1B, the report says.
    • Mark Mulholland, who runs Matthew 25, says he would refuse anything below $72 in the event of a takeover attempt for CAB, which would be a ~50% premium over today’s closing price of $46.50.
