The Washington Post Sunday - - TAKING STOCK -

The New York Times put the Bos­ton Globe up for sale for a sec­ond time. The first at­tempted sale, in 2009, ended af­ter the com­pany achieved cost cuts that in­cluded union con­ces­sions. Cap­i­tal One Fi­nan­cial agreed to sell its port­fo­lio of Best Buy credit card ac­counts to Cit­i­group, just two years af­ter buy­ing it. The move took some an­a­lysts by sur­prise, be­cause the McLean-based fi­nan­cial firm had re­cently been bulk­ing up its plas­tic card busi­ness. The sales price was not dis­closed. KKR was re­ported to have of­fered about $3.68 bil­lion for Gard­ner Den­ver, the in­dus­trial equip­ment maker that has courted takeover in­ter­est from at least eight firms since Oc­to­ber.
