Activists lead a very different style of investing, where they take large buy and hold positions of stocks to exert some external influence on the fundamental management of the companies in which they invest. This means that an activist investor potentially has more control over the outcome of their investment versus making a timing decision. This may have led to historically high batting ratios, which is the percentage of “winning” trades by profit and loss.
