What interests me is the companies where the issue of "the whole is worth more than the sum of the parts" or it's converse is true.

That is an interesting and potentially profitable approach...even more profitable if you have the funds to actually do a buyout (heh). I guess we all can't WEB.

In any event it's way beyond the simple BG criteria, which was intended not as a market beating strategy but as one by which an average investor could sleep at night without to much worry. I was interested in the experiment just to see it the BG criteria still had any legs at all.
