The opportunity for investment

With the current economic situation forcing companies to close down certain sectors, an interesting idea struck me. Talk about branding and how certain companies buy brands to make it better and then sell it back to the parent companies

This is the perfect opportunity for investors who have some mentorship background to buy sectors within a company as corporate divestiture during an economic crisis is the norm.

Build up the sector and in good times, sell it back to the parent company.

How about that?

Update: people are way ahead of me in this!! Although distressed debt was not what I was talking about, the distressed debt market has picked up of late and is targeting to do exactly what I had in mind. Their advantage: They have tons of money available =D!
