Professor Steven Davidoff wrote an op-ed for the New York Times about the on-going negotiations between Men's Warehouse and Jos. A. Bank Clothiers. Though Jos. A. Bank originally tried to buy out Men's Warehouse, Men's Warehouse flipped the script and offered to buy Jos. A Bank. Davidoff called the move a "Pac-Man defense."
"These negotiations will turn on which company is the better acquirer and which management team will prevail," Davidoff writes.
Professor Steven Davidoff wrote an op-ed for the New York Times about the popularity growth of business development companies. Legislative restrictions have loosened on these companies over the years and they have averaged a high rate of return. However, Davidoff writes that these types of companies carry a significant amount of risk.
"If another financial crisis were to erupt, business development companies would be on the front line," he said. "These companies may also be subject to huge interest rate fluctuations in ways that make them even riskier than private equity funds. That’s one reason Finra says this is not for the average investor."
