Dan Loeb's Yahoo Inc. Involvement

Dan Loeb's distinct style which is perceived as ground-breaking, innovative and efflorescent is also seen as controlling, rude and childish by others depending on who you ask. Hedge fund managers and investors alike seem invariably in favour of his nonchalant attitude toward investor activism which breaks from the militant rhetoric of other investment industry leaders. The increasingly legendary hedge fund's manager's varied popularity is to due his activist shareholder activities, which while stur considerable controversy/media attention have never constituted more than 10% of his fund, until his Yahoo position which is now approaching 25% of his equity portfolio.
