Of the seven companies it has targeted, two have seen their share prices rise, three have declined, one was suspended, and another was bought seven weeks after the outfit called it a lemon.

Viceroy’s assertions after Steinhoff International [JSE:SNH] admitted to accounting irregularities must be tested, while Capitec Bank [JSE:CPI] has come out fighting, with the South African lender saying the three-man team got many facts wrong.
