In 2011, they made 70 cents per share and its been less every year since then.
They take no investment risk and cant earn a decent ROE.
Unless someone were to buy them out at near book value or they can start earning significant earnings, this stock could be stuck down here for years to come. (Value trap ?)
Oh and what if Biglari is shopping his block around ? Then we'd fall to $7.
Biglaris avg cost adjusted for the dividend is 10.855. I guess his block is about 9.5%.
Book value is 13.28.
They brought on a director with industry experience back in may.
Would seem good for a run to 12-13 over the next few years.
Surprising to me.
Almost like a fund is buying.
However, Im still waiting for lower prices to buy back my tendered and pretender sales. $413.50-$420.
I realize I might miss out. But got some UNAM.
And they can make it another 2 years. Not so sure about PSUN.
But both could go belly up.
I look at BONT as an option. It might triple or quadruple and it might go to zero.
BH owns 9.5% with an avg cost of $10.855 from about 3 years ago. (Adjusted for a $1 dividend)
I picked up some at $9.01 and more at $8.51 before it fell to $8.15 today.
Book value is $13.28-13.44.
A fairly new director bought 5000 shares in the last few months despite already owning 24,000+ shares when being appointed.
And the company has been buying back stock.They spent $117,862 buying back stock during the last 3 quarters at an avg cost of $9.96.
UNAM reminds me somewhat of HALL which i bought years ago in the $6.50-8.50 range and is now $12.50. I still retail most of my HALL.
My guess is UNAM will return to the $12-14 range within the next few years.
Implying a potential gain of 46-57% from the closing $8.91 bid.
Oh, and i wont have to pay biglari part of my gains.
All he had to do was run a pump & dump.
And the SEC cant get him there.
And it seems the name of some of their funds has changed.
I played EMKR from $4.06 to $6.34 and its higher now.
On the other hand, Im down on FSYS which they led me to.
I don't think their recent TUES buy was very big relative to their first stake.
Another stock i followed them in PXWL Paid 2.27 and out at 4.97 and $5.49 . Now back in at $2.51,but becker hasnt bought again
And might they be working a $16-16.50 stock deal with some downside protection ?
Id really like to see a higher value here and gosh, it seems several parties could bid again.
This levitation act has lasted lots longer than I expected.
At some point, revenue & earnings are going to be required.
You can only sell "sizzle" for so long. In this case, apparently over 12 years.
BLUU, on the other hand, died a quick death. But apparently the CEO got a free house in an exotic location out of the deal.
I don't think any shares were sold and I have no idea how they account for it if they were.
Supposedly, only the pre-merger shares are entitled to anything from Jamul.
But If & when insider sales are sold, I don't know how future buyers know if they are buying with our without Jamul rights. It would seem the stock would trade at 2 different values if there were indeed shares that don't include Jamul out there.
I placed a call to their investor relations number about a week and a half ago. Left a message and nobody has returned my call. It was an investor relations voicemail but they apparently don't return calls.
Why are we paying for investor relations people who dont work ?
