Breaking Away

Breaking up isn’t hard to do on Wall Street. Activist investors and hedge fund bosses are increasingly pushing companies to unlock shareholder value by either splitting themselves or selling business units that don’t gel with the broader corporate direction. That idea has seemed to resonate with investors – over the past 17 years, spinoffs companies have, on average, outperformed the S&P 500 index by 13.4%[1] during their first 12 months being public. Why can spinoffs perform well? The new upstarts often have clear, singular management focus, accountability, lean operations and a strong alignment of stock performance with management incentives. In addition, a lack of analyst coverage and index membership can allow investors to enter at a time when fund managers are forced to exit. See more
