Meson Capital Partners Ryan Morris - Looking for Extreme Cases Where an Activist Investor Can Make a Difference

November 11, 2013 | About:

Meson Capital's Ryan Morris discusses his approach to activist investing in the video below.

Morris suggests that rather than look for cases where an activist can move in and replace a "B" quality manager with an "A plus" manager that an activist needs to focus on situations where extreme problems exist.

He also suggests that activists can't move on companies where there is "key man" risk. An activist can't move in and risk the loss of key personnel.

Ryan Morris has an incredibly ugly track record. He has underperformed every single year with the exception of the first year when he only managed $50k and owned one stock. He is highly unethical and has lied to manipulate public companies on Seeking Alpha. He has publicly disclosed the fact that he doesn't feel strategy is a primary responsibility for board members and he is a board member at four public companies. There is a movement on to remove him from the board of two companies. Anyone interested should voice their concerns on the Yahoo board for INFU or LEI.

The SEC has responded and according to Morris (in an article on thedeal.com) is questioning him related to allegations of stock manipulation.
