    magic five

    Thanks for the info regarding the "magic" price
    of 5.

    As far as a citable source of what a
    manager can or can't buy, I can only suggest looking at a
    fund's accompanying documentation (i.e. prospectus,
    board by laws, etc.). However, I still don't know if
    you'd be able to find such a restriction
    listed.

    I do know that one of my finance professors had
    told me (well, the whole class actually) years ago
    that there are some institutional investors that have
    such a restriction, and therefore, some companies will
    do a reverse stock split to raise the stock price,
    which would then make them eligible for the
    institutional investors. I think he mentioned that RJR Nabisco
    did this several years ago.
