    New Series 28

    I'm also invested in both stocks -- they are my top two investments.

    Actions has Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu as an auditor (I think they are currently the biggest accounting firm), so I would be pretty surprised if the money isn't there. Also, they have been doing a long term share buyback and have so far bought back more than 16 million shares. That's a good sign.

    • Good point, Jaret. I see the buybacks - about 100 million shares over the past 4 years or so.

      Are they going to liquidate this company? Sales are approaching zero. Shareholders should do okay at current prices if they liquidate.

        Why would you liquidate an ongoing concern with sales that have stabalized around $40 million with the capacity to more than double?
        - Yes cash is not being well utilized.
        A better approach would be to continue stock buy backs and consider a "special cash dividend" - Buy backs can increase value wihtout tax implications - Dividnds are still taxed lower in the US.. and that window many be closing-but there are also Chinese tax implications.
        Doing a combination of the above will help unlock traped value plus leave the up-side opportunity od the ongoing concern in place.
