Assets as Bizarre as Clint Eastwood Speech

According to Investopedia, one of them was the Neverland Ranch. Well-known as the home of the late Michael Jackson, the outstanding mortgage on Neverland Ranch was bought in 2008 by Fortress Investment Group, in an arrangement made by the King of Pop to avoid going into foreclosure. The mortgage of roughly $24 million was later bought by Colony Capital LLC, a private equity firm, which, along with Jackson's estate, co-owned Neverland Ranch through a company called Sycamore Valley Ranch Company LLC. Unfortunately, there are no confirmed plans for the ranch at this time, although rumors have been stirring that the 2,500 acre estate in California may be turned into a state amusement park in the future.
Back in 2005, a hedge fund known as Pirate Capital owned around a 13% stake in a company called Cornell Companies, which runs prisons. Hedge funds have been commonly associated with prisons over the years, as many fund managers have been sentenced to serve time for a plethora of different crimes, but owning them is a different story. Pirate Capital invested around $20 million and at the time became the largest shareholder of Cornell Companies; however, it appears the hedge fund no longer owns the position, since Cornell Companies was bought by rival GEO Group in 2010. In terms of diversifying assets to capture gains, this is a great example of the uncommon investments hedge funds will delve into.
