An activist investor such as Carl Icahn doesn't magically appear on the doorsteps of publicly traded companies for no good reason. For an Icahn, a Nelson Peltz, or a Bill Ackman to get involved, a company's management team and board must really be failing shareholders via misguided operating tactics. In turn, those failures show up in the stock price, masking a business that may be worth more on a public market if new ideas are implemented from the outside. Family Dollar is in a state of operational disarray says CEO of Belus Capital Advisors Brian Sozzi, created by a poorly situated board and a founder's son as CEO that has orchestrated the company's existing mess. Sozzi dives into the brain of Carl Icahn, and shows that yes, a long battle is about to ensue.
