06:47 EDTZIONActivist investors eyeing U.S. banks for merger waves, Reuters says
Activist investors are targeting the U.S. banking sector, betting that the headwinds the industry is experiencing will accelerate consolidation among such companies, Reuters reports. Banks historically have stayed out of the line of sight of activist investors, with certain exceptions, though rate and regulatory pressures could result in a wave of M&A for SMID-cap institutions, the report says. Potential activist candidates include Comerica Bank (CMA), which Hudson Executive Capital acquired a $56M stake in earlier this week, and Zions (ZION), Reuters notes. Reference Link
