    Free Company -

    What are they doing to generate earnings, which is what you assume? Are they getting new contracts? Are earnings slowing? No one on this site considers this, only how much money they have in the bank. Future dividends could use this up.

      If the company was purchased and sold as an ongoing concern (all assets equipement business practices - customer list etc. Without the cash- It sould easily bring $4-$5. (Porbaly more like $7- Buit if you just take say $4.5 then pocket the $6 in cash you still have $10 or more. - If they just break even (and maybe a litle more) you could pay the dividend for years out of cash on hand and get a 10% return just from the dividend. - If they continue at the current income rate they will add to cash. - if they increase sales and earning-well you get the idea- very undervalued here

      • If you go back and review NTE's last 3 quarters you will see a gradual increase in their gross margins. This has gone somewhat unnoticed, but is an extremely enouraging development. Sales have been flat to slightly lower. This is what has held the stock back. When this company sees a rebound in growth then earnings will escalate because of the increase in margins.

        It is paying a ridiculously high dividend while you wait. The dividend is likely to be cut next year, but the yield will still be high IMO. They tend to pay all earnings out as dividends.

        This stock is at or near the low.
