I don't know what method others used to find this stock, but my screening gave me three stocks: TRO, JAKK, and ITIC. The criteria are: Market Cap < $500K; PE < 10; PEG < 1; Price to Book <1; Debt = Zero; 5% or greater growth in earnings and revenue over last 5 years. I bought TRO at $2.50; JAKK at $11, and will probably buy ITIC at around $18. Of these, only TRO shows much liquididy. However, if ITIC ever gets on anybody's radar screen, the small float will have the stock doubling in a month.
How can we get ITIC on somebody's "radar screen"? I own a lot of it and I would very much like to see it double! Spread the word. This company has the growth and profitability of the big title insurers without the goodwill and intangibles on their balance sheets. And housing and refinancing are doing great as interest rates continue to fall. Yet this stock trades at about six times earnings!
Thanks for the tip on this stock from the old garan board. After watching this for a few days and reading up on it it looks like a good long term holding - I bought in this AM - small position while I get more familiar with the stock. I do think there is a risk that Real Estate will tank in the near future if the economy and market don't turn around at some point.
With the market being killed all over there are a number of things to look at right now but I can't say there are many GAN's out there.
