Alex Yemenidjian puts his money where his mouth is.

Peripatetic preacher of a turnaround gospel at MGM since being named chairman and CEO of the studio in April 1999, Yemenidjian has newly acquired some $2.3 million in Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer stock at an average price of $24.38 per share. Disclosed in a regulatory filing Tuesday, Yemenidjian’s purchase of 93,260 shares was conducted on the open market Monday.
