    So it’s no surprise that on Thursday, none other than Bill Miller, the Chairman and CEO of Legg Mason Inc. (NYSE: LM) subsidiary LMM, told Bloomberg Television that “Bitcoin is like making a venture bet. The potential return is huge.”

    Take a look at these other Nelson Peltz activist investing success stories:

    H.J. Heinz: When Peltz got involved with Heinz, the stock had been slumping. He encouraged management to cut costs, buy back shares, and refocus the company on its core brands. By the time Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK.A, BRK.B) bought it last year for $23 billion, the stock had shot up 75%. “Management did a great job executing the turnaround, but Peltz was the catalyst for a lot of the change,” John Sini, a portfolio manager at Douglas C. Lane & Associates Inc., told Bloomberg News last year. “We are looking at this price now and saying, ‘Thank you, thank you, thank you.'” Ingersoll-Rand PLC (NYSE: IR): Peltz took an interest in this manufacturer of industrial and commercial goods back in mid-2012; the stock is up 77% since then. Among the moves Peltz influenced was a spinoff of IR’s security division, a $2 billion share repurchase program, and a 31% increase in the dividend. Legg Mason Inc. (NYSE: LM): Peltz owns 10% and has a seat on the board of the once high-flying financial firm that fell on hard times after the departure in 2008 of founder Raymond “Chip” Mason. Peltz helped get Legg Mason back on track by playing a leading role in selecting current Chief Executive Officer Joseph A. Sullivan, who assumed the top post in February 2013. The change in leadership worked; since December 2012, LM is up 75%.


    This “Peltzing” is a phenomenon of particular interest now that he has a new top holding…

    As he likes to say, “If the choice is between being first and being best, being first is better.” Mr. LeBaron founded Batterymarch Financial Management(LM) in Boston in 1969, investing mainly in small-company stocks, an opportunity almost nobody else was yet interested in. Batterymarch also pioneered quantitative investing, which uses statistical analysis–not human judgment–to pick stocks. In the 1970s, he says, every employee at the firm had three computers: “We had 90 machines when many firms didn’t have one.”

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    Last week, the IRS gave Iron Mountain (IRM) what it wanted: REIT status. Since then, the storage company’s shares have jumped 18%–and JPMorgan thinks they could head higher.

    AP

    JPMorgan’s Andrew Steinerman and Jeffrey Volshteyn explain why they now rate Iron Mountain Overweight:

    Iron Mountain announced that it achieved IRS approval for REIT status retroactively as of January 1, 2014, completing a process that began in 2012. Iron Mountain stock leaped 20% on Thursday due to the large cash tax savings and the resulting increased dividend. We still see continued upside due to valuation as yield-oriented and REIT investors are attracted to Iron Mountain. While we recognize that Iron Mountain will not prospectively trade at a full real estate valuation (due to the services side of their business), the REIT structure should help highlight the sizable valuation gap that exists today and should narrow over time.


    Iron Mountain is much cheaper than the industrial, self storage and data center REITs that carry dividend yields of 3.6%, 3.3% and 4.6% respectively. We believe the dividend yields of prison stocks (also non-traditional REITs), which have dividend yields of 6.3%, provide downside protection to Iron Mountain.

    Prison REIT Corrections Corp of America (CXW) yields 6.2% and trades at 24.9 times earnings, while Geo Group (GEO) yields 6.4% on a P-E ratio of 20.8 times.

    Shares of Iron Mountain have, while Correction Corp of America has and Geo Group has.

    Think of Iron Mountain (IRM) as any heavy metal band after Nirvana broke in 1991. Suddenly, a way of playing music that had been wildly successful was looked at as an anachronism and bands like Metallica cut their hair, wore flannel and did just about anything they could think of to fit in in a changed world.

    Getty Images/Lonely Planet Image

    That’s Iron Mountain today. It has a business that was once fantastic–storing paper files for corporations. But in a digital world, that business is passé, even if it still brings in tons of money. Sure, Iron Mountain is doing everything it can to change its stripes–offering digital services, trying to morph into a REIT–but Iron Mountain is still what it is.


    And that’s a struggling business.

    On Friday, Iron Mountain released financial results and promptly fell 4.3%, as its earnings and revenue were in line with analyst forecasts but Iron Mountain’s North American storage growth turned negative, perhaps for the first time ever, notes Jefferies’ Dan Dolev and Trevor Young.

    So what now? Dolev and Young don’t think emerging markets can fix what ails Iron Mountain:

    It was encouraging to see international storage internal growth decelerate only slightly (-20bps to +6.3%) as it faced +70bps tougher compares…Is the strength sustainable? We are hopeful, but are not holding our breath given that 1) 4Q storage internal growth in developed international markets (e.g. Western Europe) was already below the FY average (+2.2% vs. +2.5% for the FY), and 2) although 4Q EM storage internal growth accelerated (+13.4% vs. +13.2% for the FY), history suggests that EMs can skip decades of technology evolution and upgrade directly to the newest technology (e.g. smartphones in China).

    Dolev and Young also doubt Iron Mountain’s M&A strategy. They explain why:

    With FY13 global storage internal growth 3x slower than during the Great Re
