I bought it at 12 1/2 about a month ago. At that time, it satisfied all 8 of the criteria in MFIG, and had a PEG of .42. Basic financials all looked good as well: Cash/Market Cap = 18%; Current ratio of 2.22, and Quick ratio of 1.84; Enterprise value/Shareholder equity = 2.14, which in these overvalued times seemed very good. Since I bought it, it has been trading in the 13's pretty consistently, and their quarter ends next week. So, we should probably see an earnings report sometime in August. They beat the consensus estimate by 14% last quarter, and I hope they will do so again. Their sales depend largely on demand from the hotel industry, and as far as I can tell, this industry seems fairly strong at the moment.
