Guru Investment Theses on Staples Inc

Yacktman Fund Comments on Staples - Feb 05, 2016

Staples (NASDAQ:SPLS) was weak after the Federal Trade Commission challenged its proposed merger with Office Depot due to anti- trust concerns. The company is a significant free cash flow generator and inexpensive even though the industry is under intense pressure. There could be significant additional upside if Staples is able to ultimately prevail in its attempt to acquire Office Depot.
