Who’s vulnerable?

When generating investment ideas, how important are the following to screen for targets?

With many activists following a potential investment for six months before building a stake, companies have only a limited amount of time to reverse setbacks before they become a target. Here, activists explain what they look for in a target, and what might catch their eye in the year ahead.

Companies with poor corporate governance as their only issue can perhaps rest easy. Activists attribute some of the lowest weightings to traditional metrics in this area, such as proxy advisory recommendations and shareholder votes on remuneration. Nor, surprisingly, is valuation ranked as highly as might be expected – only 20% of respondents say a price-to-earnings ratio was a very important screen, and only 47% cite it as somewhat important.
