    Most likely there was a leak somehow. Looks extremely dubious.

  • Fight between Phil Falcone and MCG Capital gets dirty [View news story]
    Future performance should be priced in already, don't you think? Regardless of that, at current market prices you can sell HC2 and buy EVEN MORE PFLT if you like it so much.

    The directors of MCGC don't even hold a significant position in their own vehicle. All they care about is their job. A shame that their mud-slinging seems to have an effect on you.

    Agreed. Good to see that the vultures are on my side.

  • Accretive Capital Partners Believes HC2 Holdings' Offer For MCG Capital May Be Superior Than PennantPark's [View article]
    Or because the stock market is skeptical about the directors of MCGC, who seem more interested in keeping their payroll than actually performing their fiduciary duty.

    The reasons they give for not accepting the HC2 bid are ridiculous. For example this one:

    "Morgan Stanley also discussed the valuation of the consideration offered by HC2 and noted that while it was unclear whether the termination fee was payable by MCG or by HC2 if the company decided to accept HC2’s offer, but that they assumed if MCG stockholders bore this cost, and accounting for that fee, the stated value of the proposed consideration payable drops to $4.81 per share, which amounted to approximately 106% of the company’s estimated NAV at closing."

    It could have been verified by a single phonecall that this is untrue.

    fwiw there is possibly also some value in the real estate that has been appraised at $100m than where it is on the books.

  • Going Private Arbitrage Offers Over 70% Annualized Return With Medium Risk [View article]
    I'm sure the CEO of Hancock would agree with that. Everybody is to blame but Maarten Pieters, the guy who wrote an article for $200 for the largest investing website worldwide, explaining literally how to exploit the odd lot clause.

    Regardless of how many pageviews your article had, posting it was a terrible idea. Alpha Vulture literally predicted what would happen. Fortunately you don't attract too many readers or it would've been over even quicker.

    At least you could be a stand up guy and admit this was _PARTIALLY_ your fault. We can argue about how much you are to blame, my rough guess would be that this article is responsible for ~25% of all people trying to exploit this deal.

  • Transformation Play; Value Micro Cap Near Its 10 Year Low [View article]
    What's your take on the latest quarterly? A $16m writedown and possibly more charges to come:

    Given our adjustments to our overhead structure, we expect selling, general and administrative costs to be approximately $3.5 million quarterly for the near term, excluding restructuring charges.
