Its that time of the year again, no not the Super Bowl or $&@(>€£# snow, its the semi-annual Barron's Roundtable. Hooray. It really is one of the few useful articles that I get from the publication any more, besides the 13F, Stock Alert and Weekday Trader columns.
Typically my favorite ideas from the Roundtable come from Meryl Witmer and Mario Gabelli. In the past, both have had semi-Special Situation-esque (how's that for a word) tilt to their investments. Unfortunately, Ms. Witmer had not had any ideas that I have loved lately.
The idea that I want to talk right now about now actually comes from Oscar Schafer. It is a stock that I have mentioned here in the past and personally own, Maple Leaf Foods. It trades OTC in the U.S. under the symbol MLFNF, but I own the shares directly on the Toronto Exchange under the symbol MFI. [more]

Wow two editions of the Special Situation Investing News in one week. I've really outdone myself :). Enjoy! [more]
