Relational Investors just reported that it is now the largest shareholder of the defense contractor L-3. I have had success following this activist investor in the past. Most recently when it successfully pushed for the break-up of ITT.To unlock value, Relational is pushing for a the sale or spin-off of business units that it believes are dragging down L-3's performance. This may include the sale of the company's low-margin, no growth government-services division and its aircraft-maintenance division. Divesting these businesses would enable L-3 to focus its resources on growing its high-margin businesses, including such as electronic systems and surveillance / intelligence. Deej
