Here is what Clark Street Value has to say about American Realty Investors, Inc. in its Q4 2021 investor letter:

"I wrote up the mess of a situation at Transcontinental Realty (TCI) and parent American Realty (ARL) earlier this week. I had one big mistake, I thought the $134MM of notes receivable were just mortgage loans consolidated fromIncome Opportunity Realty (IOR), that's not the case, so the fair value of TCI is ~$15 higher than the $60/share I threw out there. IOR is maybe the strangest little micro cap I've looked at, almost all of the assets of the company are a loan to Pillar, IOR's external advisor, not sure how that's okay legally and might be why it is being challenged in a shareholder lawsuit. IOR is probably worth a closer look (won't take you long)."
