    7 Activist Stocks for Investors to Consider

    Billionaire Dan Loeb doesn’t get in a proxy fight with Campbell Soup (NYSE:CPB) if he doesn’t think there’s money to be made owning activist stocks such as the iconic soup company. “If you decided to invest money in a random sample of activist hedge funds, you would have earned 12.4% before paying the hedge fund 2% per year plus 20% of that 12.4% upside,” wrote Roger Martin, director of the Martin Prosperity Institute, on August 20 in the Harvard Business Review. For example, the fact that Dan Loeb and Third Point LLC feels it’s worth having a proxy fight with Campbell Soup suggests at the very least that there’s some untapped value at the company that current management can’t or won’t extract for shareholders.

    5 Beaten-Down Stocks to Buy

    Winnebago Industries (NYSE:WGO) has had to deal with tough headwinds. What’s more, even the millennial generation has become a big part of the business, which involves a trend called “glampers.” Note that a big part of WGO’s revenues come from the Towable segment, which has become popular with this demographic (the company recently purchased boat builder Chris-Craft). Back in May, Symantec (NASDAQ:SYMC) stock plunged more than a third because of news that the company’s audit committee had launched an investigation.

    Symantec Makes Elections More Secure With Free Service to ‘Spoof Proof’ Websites, Including Candidates & Political Organizations

    Symantec Corp. (SYMC), the world’s leading cyber security company, today announced the availability of a free service, powered by Symantec’s proprietary artificial intelligence technology, that political candidates and campaigns can use to test the security and authenticity of their websites. The websites of candidates, state election commissions, and other political organizations are a prime target for malicious actors seeking to influence the outcome of the upcoming U.S. midterm elections, as well as other global electoral processes. Organizations, including candidates, election commissions and political parties, can easily sign up free of charge to have their websites checked by Symantec’s Project Dolphin spoof proof service, utilizing the company’s proprietary and patented technology.

    Symantec offers free anti-spoofing services to US political campaigns and election groups

    Symantec is the latest private security company to offer its expertise to vulnerable political targets on the house. Today the company announced that it would extend its "Project Dolphin" service (dolphins eat phish, get it?) to political campaigns, candidates and election officials, all "prime target[s] for malicious actors seeking to influence the outcome of the upcoming U.S. midterm elections." The service allows for anyone to run a check on their own website to make sure no illegitimate or "spoofed" versions of it are floating around and luring unsuspecting victims. Individuals in those qualifying groups can sign up for free for Project Dolphin, Symantec's AI-powered system that scans for and notifies users of illegitimate websites pretending to be the real thing — just one flavor of the common hacking technique called "spoofing." Through spoofed sites, much like spoofed email accounts, hackers can steal login credentials and other sensitive data and wreak whatever kind of havoc they want, much like they did with the DNC prior to the 2016 US presidential election.

    Symantec makes deal with Starboard for new board members

    Symantec Corp. announced Monday afternoon that it had reached a deal with activist investor Starboard Value LP for new board members. Symantec appointed three new directors, including Starboard managing member Peter Feld, to the board, and said it would negotiate with Starboard for one more member to be named after its annual meeting. Starboard had challenged Symantec by nominating five directors for a vote at the security-software company's annual meeting. Symantec said two directors, Steve Miller and Gerry Laybourne, will not stand for re-election at the annual meeting, and the board would eventually have 13 members after the pending appointment. Also named to the board Monday were former McAfee executive Dale Fuller and former Novellus Systems Inc. Chief Executive Richard Hill. Symantec stock has struggled since the company disclosed an investigation into whistleblower claims about its finances in May. The stock has fallen 27.7% in the past six months, as the S&P 500 index has gained 5.6%.
