VERY undervalued in my book !

Generally good news. :-

(See posts 388/584/665/760/1051 on 'Investment Analysis Clubs / Buffett Small Cap Investing' board for extra due diligence applied ).MaxPrice is a generic version of Mike Klein's Maxprice and ROIC and Earnings yields are generic versions of Greenblatt's metrics.

All good enough for my money. I only recommend stocks that I own !

See 'Investment Analysis Clubs / Buffett Small Cap Investing' board and my CAPS profile for further excellent companies selling at a discount to Intrinsic Value. CAPS only shows my selections over 100Mill (unfortunately due to restricted lower market cap applied by MF CAPS).

As stated on the 'Investment Analysis Clubs / Buffett Small Cap Investing' board my aim is to obtain up to 50% returns p.a. as Buffett stated he could obtain (3 times) recently. A very difficult task but you can follow along with my buys and sells on MY CAPS , where I put my money where my mouth is . If I perform well I hope you can benefit. If not , feel free to ignore my comments. CAPS allows each and everyone of us to be clinically judged on our stock picking abilities over the LONG TERM.

Please do your own due diligence before investing.
