What Katz is really good at is identifying poorly performing drug store chains, buying them out, and then increasing their return through good management hire. He doesn't manage these himself. He's great with crunching numbers and buying low and then selling at a later point when a chains returns represent some level of value. Not to diminish his accomplishment, but it isn't in management as much as its in acquisitions/mergers/. He's usually been good at identifying managers for the companies he has. Too bad in the Oilers case its Tambo.
