An Open Forum With Activist Investor’s Tom Carroll

We are excited to share with you this latest Porter & Co. Open Forum – a new feature to allow readers to ask questions of analysts from all our research advisories. Below we bring you a discussion between Activist Investor editor Tom Carroll and publisher Kim Iskyan.

In this “ask me anything” format, readers brought questions on a range of topics, including the role of activists in Activist Investor, how Tom finds stocks that many other investors don’t know about, the average duration of an activist investment, and Tom’s favorite positions in the portfolio.

Tom begins the conversation by talking about how Activist Investor came about and what makes a good recommendation.
