In conjunction with Delivering Alpha, S&P Capital IQ put together a short list of companies “in need” of an activist investor.

Here are a few of their more interesting targets:

DreamWorks – “could help actualize its potential attractiveness as a takeover target.”

J.M. Smucker – “sluggish top-line growth in the past five years (4.3 percent compound annual growth rate) that reflects healthy cash flows.”

SM Energy – “has a long-term debt-to-capital ratio of almost 54 percent, and its stock price has dropped by about 40 percent during the past 12 months.”

Pitney Bowes – “a potential activist could look to separate the mailing business from digital software to reignite the company.”

Xerox – “trailed the sector’s stock returns for the past several years.”
