    $25 million invested in equities with a "professional advisor" and the company lost $2 million in market value of the equities in 3 months.

    Time to hire another "professional advisor" or better yet do something shareholder friendly with the cash!!!

    • gencor lawsuit with 95,000 shares paid up to settle case is one of the most amazing items I have ever come across in a 10-Q

    • Seriously, read the report. It's not 25 million with the adviser. It's 68 million.

      Here's the information directly from the 10-Q (dollar numbers are in thousands):

      "As of June 30, 2010, the Company had $2,456 in cash and cash equivalents, and $68,953 in marketable securities. The marketable securities are invested through a professional investment advisor."

      And the losses were recovered after the quarter ended.

      Once again, directly from the 10-Q:

      "The net investment losses included in the current quarter reflect the overall dip in the market at the end of June 2010. Through August 4, 2010 the investment returns had recovered the losses experienced during the third quarter, however, we cannot guaranty that we will not experience losses during future periods."

      This company has $71million in cash/marketable securities, and the market value is $71million. Read Benjamin Graham. This is his type of stock. Eventually, the road business will recover. Roads need to be paved. Value investors generally have patience.
