Brazilian makeup brand Natura Cosmeticos SA is close to completing a deal to acquire Avon Products Inc., a source with knowledge of the matter said on Monday. Natura and Avon, which has a market capitalization of $1.4 billion, did not immediately comment on the matter.

Natura confirmed in March that it’s in talks to buy Avon, and a deal could value the beauty industry pioneer of direct-sales at more than $2 billion, one of the people said.

One of the greatest obstacles to share price appreciation is mediocre management, supported by a complacent board. But activist investors offer a solution, targeting poorly managed companies and lobbying them for changes they think will sweeten the share price.Activist investors look for issues such as weak corporate governance or executive compensation schemes when hunting new stocks to buy. They often then take a significant stake in the company and push for things such as asset sales or the return of excess cash to shareholders. Companies slow to implement change may be threatened with "proxy fights" that result in corporate officers and directors being forced from their seats.These activist investors sometimes create big windfalls for shareholders. For instance, Carl Icahn pushed eBay (EBAY) to spin off its PayPal (PYPL) business in 2015; since then, PayPal has tripled in value. Activist David Einhorn pressured Apple (AAPL) in 2013, urging the iPhone maker to return excess cash to shareholders. Since fiscal 2012, Apple has returned more than $350 billion in the form of buybacks and dividends, with the vast majority of that coming since 2013.Here are 17 stocks to buy if you believe in the ideas of their activist investors. Some have just recently come under siege, others are in the middle of proxy fights, and still others have already made truces and have implemented changes to unlock value. But all of these stocks carry significant risk - after all, activist investors typically target struggling companies, and no turnaround is a slam dunk. So invest in small amounts, with funds from the portion of your portfolio dedicated to aggressive holdings. SEE ALSO: 50 Top Stocks That Billionaires Love
