  • Mario Gabelli Offers 3 Takeover Targets

    By Alex Gray - July 15, 2013 | Tickers: NAV, POST, SLE

    Investing in a stock as a potential takeover target has never really been a strategy that I have employed. However, one prominent investor and billionaire has made a living on doing just that. Mario Gabelli, Chairman and CEO of GAMCO Investors, has had some big wins over the years buying larges stakes in companies that were later sold for multiples of his original investment.

    By Zain Abbas - June 21, 2013 | Tickers: CMI, MTZ, NAV

    I recently discussed how investors have been taking deep interest in the comparison between engineering and construction (E&C) companies and machinery manufacturers.

  • It Looks Like a Winnebago With Wings!

    By John Casteele - May 22, 2013 | Tickers: NAV, THO, WGO

    My first encounter with an RV made by Winnebago Industries (NYSE: WGO) was in Mel Brooks' sci-fi spoof Spaceballs. I was only around 8 years old at the time, but the beat-up old Winnebago that Lonestar and Barf travelled the galaxy in stuck in my mind as a symbol of the open road. Imagine my surprise to grow up and find that Winnebagos currently only make up around 20% of more »

    By Neha Chamaria - May 17, 2013 | Tickers: CAT, CMI, NAV, PCAR
