Sure, Activist Investing, But Not Here.

Interesting disconnect in a new study on activist investing:

Overall, 56% of respondents expect to see an increase in shareholder activism in the next 12 months. But only 39% of corporate respondents expect the amount of activism to grow, compared with 72% of shareholder activists responding to the survey.


Get that? Most corporate sorts don’t think we will see an upswing in activist investing in the coming year, while most activist investors – the people who actually do that sort of thing – think they’re wrong. Gosh, wonder who is right?
