    Amazing. Company solidly profitable. Market value is at cash on the balance sheet. 1.0 times BV.

    Since when do companies that are profitable (even though they may be going through a challenging period) trade at below 5 times earnings, trade below cash level on the balance sheet and at 1 times BV. Furthermore, cash levels increased from 2011 to 2012 by $100 mill. These are incredible stats. I really do not get it. What are people thinking on this stock? This has to be one of the greatest value buys of all time.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • 1. Not trading below cash on the balance sheet. Though there is a good amount of cash.

      2. I will ask again, if this is one of the greatest value buys of all time, why is there not one insider or director purchasing shares? Not one - ever. If those running the company have a problem taking money out of their pocket and buying shares, then I'm sure not going to. They certainly know more about the company than you, me, or anyone else here....and even Mr. Grosso.
