Shortlisted – takeovers

The bid for Treasury Wine Estates by private equity group KKR last week has again focussed investors’ attention on potential gains that can be made from buying the next target.

How to pick them

Tom Elliott, director at Beulah Capital, knows a thing or two about takeover companies and has a whole portfolio based on the concept that certain companies will eventually be acquired by other companies.

“We sort of comb through the shareholder registers of what we see as target companies and that's how we come up with our lists of stocks,” Elliott said on Switzer TV last week.
