    [$$] Big GE Stock Buy: Crazy or Just Contrarian?

    Hexavest is a Montreal-based institutional investment manager that is 49% owned by Eaton Vance. Being contrarian is Hexavest’s raison d’être. Jean-René Adam, co-chief investment officer, declares in the firm’s introduction video, “When everybody’s bullish on something, we see that as a negative.” One negative that Hexavest is facing is that its U.S. equities investments, which totaled about $8.8 billion on Dec. 31, are trailing the Standard & Poor’s 500 index for every time period when fees are taken into account.

    Report: Akamai talking to Morgan Stanley about strategic alternatives, including possible sale

    Cambridge-based Akamai Technologies Inc. is talking to Morgan Stanley (GS) about strategic alternatives, including a potential sale of the $11.5 billion firm, according to a report from Bloomberg , citing unnamed people familiar with the matter. The news comes less than a month after Elliott Management, an activist hedge fund led by billionaire investor Paul Singer, unveiled a 6.5 percent stake in Akamai. Elliott called the shares undervalued and floated the idea of a possible sale in a December regulatory filing, similar to the language it had used in filings when it took large stakes in Watertown-based athenahealth Inc. (ATHN) and Hopkinton-based EMC Corp. Health care software firm athenahealth has identified at least $100 million in costs to cut since Elliott took a stake in May, and EMC merged in 2016 with Dell in a $58 billion deal.

    [$$] Elliott Associates Wants to Discuss Opportunities With Akamai

    Source: InsiderScore.com On Dec. 19, Brigade Capital disclosed its stake of 5,157,306 Kindred shares, or 5.8% of all tradable stock, inclusive of 1,500,000 shares upon the potential exercise of corresponding call options. In its Dec. 27 letter, Brigade wrote that the acquisition “appears timed to enable the buyers…to take advantage of the negative impact…that certain recent, but temporary, events have had” on the stock price. It concluded that Kindred “has ample liquidity and no near-term debt maturities,” and that, combined with its expected free cash flow generation, it should enable “significant stock price appreciation.” Edenbrook Capital raised its stake to 1,811,472 shares of common, or 5.2% of all tradable shares, after buying 10,550 at prices from $6.75 to $6.95 apiece from Dec. 8 through Dec. 26.
