I believe that Kamna is a good company. However, it has obvious management problems. I am also concerned about the combination of the two niches, unless, of course, you also want to give a serenade when you shoot at the enemy.

Here is my humble analysis that I am happy to share with y'all.

Purchase price between $9 and $11

Target price within 5 years = $20 (Score 95/100)
Forecasted yield for each of the next 5 years = 4% (Score 90/100)
Forecasted EPS for next 5 years = $1.25 (Score 95/100)
Adjusted book value = $13.50 (Score 100/100)
Insiders activity = Very few buys (Score 65/100)
Consensus recommendation = Buy minus (Score 65/100)
Level of management's salaries = slightly above average (Score 40/100)
Safety level = B+ (Score 85/100)
MF's guts feeling = Good (Score 90/100)

Results of the score board = 81/100
By my standards, not a great buy
Accumulate ?
