    What an unpopular stock...

    The material difference in fundamentals between when this stock traded at 38 vs 22 is pretty slim....

    • I agree. Its Phil Cohen and his annual fees with a BOD that has 0 power. The BOD members have to be clowns to sit on that BOD and collect fees and vote in favor of paying Cohen a 6% dividend for investment advise that the company really isn't benefitting from. Cohen has control and until he's willing to give it up this stock will never be what it really could be. He's making all the decisions on management, growth strategy and acquisitions. This company has 2 things going for it right now. Its in the right space and has very little debt. Its lacking shareholder transparency , a truly resourceful independent BOD and current management still needs to prove themselves. The gold play is over and now management much rely mostly on general merchandise loans. Its back to the old days of basic blocking and tackling. This stock will increase at some point because of no debt and the slow organic growth. I'll agree its certainly not very exciting.

      • The reality is that as long as they get paid fees, the actual stock price means nothing. Meaning salaries & fees - why would you care about stock price beyond appearances. The whole thing was at least marginal acceptable;e when the advisory decisions were leading them to greater execution than their piers, but that appears to now be in question. This quarters earnings are going to be very telling.
