I still think CSTR is trading at a premium, but I can't help but love the decisions by their management. This acquisition was smart, they are preparing themselves to become a global banking chain. Given the growth of the Latino population in the US, I see this as being a nice growth acquisition. It's not as exciting as Redbox, but it could have the same potential.

I have always preferred to buy stocks when they are down, but ever since I started following the company, I've seen management make one outstanding decision after another. I'm still not sure how to value that, but it sure is fun to watch them execute, when so many people are unaware of all of the pieces that they've put together.
