    Value doesn't add up.

    The stock is very cheap now. Sardar has done a nice job overall. He doesn't miss an opportunity to take advantage of his power/control. That's the drawback. However, he is talented and has made overall good decisions since he took over SNS. Other than paying himself a very high amount, it's hard to be too critical with what he has done. In time, I think he will do well.

    This management team has made all the right moves the last few years. Their last two acquisitions have proven to be very good. Now they are using excess cash to buy more shares. I think this stock goes much higher.

    Earnings

    They have earned .24 in the last two quarters. I'm not sure of the seasonality in their business but just annualizing, we're at .48 cents in earnings. If you believe the housing market and renovation market will continue to recover, then Carpets earnings will increase from here. A company earning 50 cents a share with good management and growth should be selling for north of $5 per share. I think it goes there. This management team has a great track record.
