The traders, through an account in Switzerland, bought $1.6 million in USCS stock on Sept. 2 prior to an after-hours announcement by Kansas City, Mo.-based DST Systems Inc. of plans to acquire the company for about $760 million in stock.

George Argyros is a man who can't sit still. He often carries two briefcases when he boards his private jet. His 100-foot yacht, the Huntress, is equipped with satellite communications, mainly for telephones and fax machines. Even on a pleasure cruise in the Mediterranean, "he's always looking to soak up something other than sun--he soaks up information," says James L. Doti, president of Chapman University in Orange where Argyros is chairman of the board of trustees.
