SoftBank CEO makes investment bets unpredictably, WSJ reports

SoftBank CEO Masayoshi Son has been on a buying spree taking stakes in dozens of companies making decisions that sometime appear methodical and other times haphazard, the Wall Street Journal reports, citing current and former SoftBank directors, executives, investing partners and others who know Son. The CEO sometimes makes gut-instinct decisions like the time he spent roughly 30 minutes to decide he wanted to invest $200M in Plenty, an indoor vegetable startup, and other times he compiles detailed analysis providing directors with hundreds of pages of documents to explain an investment target.

SoftBank eyes acquisitions to create $300B asset-management arm, Bloomberg says
SoftBank Group (SFTBF) is looking at further acquisitions in the financial sector in an effort to establish a $300B asset management arm that would include its $93B Vision Fund over the next four to five years, Bloomberg reports, citing people familiar with the matter. SoftBank, which agreed to acquire Fortress Investment Group (FIG) for $3.3B in February, is mulling investments in the space such as acquiring traditional investment firms or taking stakes in major private equity shops like KKR (KKR).

Wells Fargo 'surprised' tower stocks didn't react to SoftBank news
After it was reported that SoftBank (SFTBF) and Australian real estate company Lendlease formed a joint venture to purchase 8,000 cell tower sites in the U.S., Wells Fargo analyst Jennifer Fritzsche said she was "surprised" that tower company stocks did not react to this news. She had already thought if a T-Mobile (TMUS) and Sprint (S) merger deal was followed by T-Mobile CTO Neville Ray talking about network savings that the tower stocks "could take a hit," and this news may have given him "a much bigger arrow" in that quiver, she tells investors. Publicly traded tower companies include American Tower (AMT), Crown Castle (CCI) and SBA (SBAC).

KeyBanc says Softbank JV won't compete with primary business of tower operators
KeyBanc said it does not view Softbank's (SFTBF) joint venture with Australia's Lendlease as competitive to the tower operators' primary business, noting that the venture is likely to focus on rooftop sites in urban markets, but tower businesses generate the vast majority of their revenue on sites located outside urban areas. Publicly traded tower companies include American Tower (AMT), Crown Castle (CCI) and SBA (SBAC).
