Sculptor Capital: Turning A Corner

Sculptor Capital has had a shaky history over a legal dispute. Settled in 2020, the main damper on the stock has been removed leaving an attractable company cheaply priced. There have been several changes towards the company's leaders, names, performance, and ratings. As of May, AUM has slightly decreased to $36.8 billion or the exact same level as the end of 2020. In a partnership with Diamond Communications LLC, Melody Wireless was acquired for $1.625 billion. This affects Diamond more in its stance as a communications tower company, but should still be addressed.
