Cal Fed Bancorp said it has adopted a stockholder rights plan for protection from hostile takeovers.

The measure, known as a poison pill, takes effect if a person or company buys 15% or more of the company's stock without the board's permission. The plan grants, among other things, all stockholders except the unapproved buyer the right to acquire $110 worth of Cal Fed stock for $55.
