Re: IAC dbl spinout leaves stub @ -$2B

Thanks, Rob. You know I like these situations where it looks like we're getting a business for free or even at a negative value. And with MTCH trading publicly, you can lock in the value of that stub. This looks pretty compelling, I think. [more]

Re: CONE exploring a sale?

Interesting, and CONE -- along with the other data center REITs -- doesn't look all that cheap on conventional REIT multiples, but it's the same with all the data center REITs. But like the tower REITs, they've got a lot of growth that [more]

Re: CNNE

Hi, Randy,

I haven't been following CNNE that closely, but I think it's probably a good move for them to unload some of the CDAY stock -- whew, has that run up quickly! And CNNE management as well as FNF management did a good job [more]

Re: Cars.com crashed hard. Totaled?

Yeah, it's been quite drop since the time of the spinoff or so. Another part of buying with hedgies who will unload their positions on you quickly if they're not seeing what they want.

Re: Cars.com crashed hard. Totaled?

Oof. And does CARS have a proven activist holding its feet to the fire? This looks like a damning sell from Starboard.

Re: Dupont - Talks of division sale

It's always weird when you leave a company like that, especially if you were friends with a lot of people there. Everyone goes on without you and the business proceeds in new directions, day after day, and you simply gradually fade from their [more]

Re: Dupont - Talks of division sale

Yeah, and lots of ways DD could go with that unit, including a Reverse Morris Trust with another player. I've read that there may be many options to continue splitting up the components of the former DWDP. But the market doesn't love any of [more]

Re: Cars.com crashed hard. Totaled?

CARS has been a wreck more or less since the spinoff. Before that, it was growing very nicely.

Re: CTRE

Yeah, not a bad quarter and year for CTRE. They're a well-run company, and I expect good things long term.

However, it looks like their chart has finally started to break down, so I do wonder if they continue sliding from here. [more]

Re: TFSL's MHC Dividend Waiver

It's good to see this become official, although they haven't seemed to have any problems up til now getting it passed. We've seen a decent drift up in the stock since the initial announcement.

Re: Am I thinking correctly here - ROKU options?

Hey, Vince,

You should always consider the merits of the incremental investment and not entangle your prior decision with the new one. If you roll, you're effectively closing the old position and setting up a new risk-reward. So I would [more]

Re: NRE buyout

Well, well, well...

Interesting that we had reports just a few days ago about nearly $18 per share and then we have this. Could it have been someone leaking that to get a higher price out of the buyer?

Anyway, here's what [more]
