    Market says OIIM worth $35M more than cash on hand....

    It is amazing how cheap this stock is. Market cap is currently $150M, net cash is $115M, so for a net investment of $35M you get a ~$125M/yr in profitable revenues and ~12x p/e. I realize the world economy is not looking good, but this company is too cheap. I would not be surprised if some potential acquirers are sniffing around.

    • Understood - I think this is telling you something more than "it's cheap". Perhaps though it's a public company, you just can't expect to get liquidity from this investment. Where are the headquarters? This is a friggin ADR with no sponsorship...no one is going to come in and buy this company...

      The valuation highlights a liquidity issue at a company with only modest prospects. Sure if you hold forever you might get some payoff, but this is the worst kind of investment - illiquid with limited growth prospects.
