(The New York Times)   The one upside of activist investors is that even the imperial CEOs of the 80s and 90s have bosses these days, and that having your own 28-room hotel for visiting guests is on the way out. Nobody tell you-know-who   ( nytimes.com) divider line

"Activist Investors" are a cancer and represent the worst of corporate greed.  They are literal parasites that bully their way into position and then bleed a company dry before detaching and moving onto the next victim.

It will take time, but the .01% will thin down the 1% and humble them to servants they are supposed to be.

Carl Icahn is pioneer of the practice, right?  How would you explain his business model then?

Activists are now hunting much bigger game, demanding double-digit annual earnings growth in a stagnant economy. Or else.

And that's a farking problem. This article talks about gone are the days of a CEO who would rule the roost for 10-15 years because activist investors keep pushing them out because of a failure to produce double digit increases every quarter. That is a VERY bad thing. A company who produces steady, sustainable growth quarter over quarter over quarter is exactly what the world needs, yet these assholes would see a CEO under that structure for someone who gave them 15% returns for a year and then bail, leaving the company to falter and crash.

fark activist investors.

way overdue, getting rid of the ridiculously overpaid CEO's, Presidents and VP's. talk to family, friends, neighbors, co-workers. way too many of the top-shelf assholes are incompetent and quite hated.
