Mario Gabelli Provides Investors with a List of Stocks That Will Double

February 12, 2013 | About:
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.

Amazingly, the average turnover of stocks in Gabelli's main fund is 8% which means his average holding period is 12 years.

Some ideas from him today that he thinks will double in a reasonable period:

- Gencorp (GY)

- Legg Mason (NYSE:LM)
