Mario Gabelli was on CNBC this morning proclaiming the benefits of spinoffs and financial engineering for creating/realizing value for shareholders. His most recent example that his investors were beneficiaries of was Madison Square Garden (NYSE:MSG) which was spun out at $18 and is now $54.

- Legg Mason (NYSE:LM)
