No. of Recommendations: 1
I like companies whose valuations are backstopped with pure cash and marketable securities. They have always made me excellent money. For some reaon I missed NTE despite owning it once and mulling over buying it when it traded near $5. I have the following two stocks currently that I purchased when they were trading near cash. They are up since then but the opportunity has not been completely capitalized:

TST: net cash and investements: $78M. MKT cap: 107M. Div: 3%. Cash flow +ve firms.

MOH: net cash and investments: 608M Mkt cap: 1.05B. Cash flow +ve

These have been low margin and very low revenue growth businesses so far but far from dead. Cash/investments backstops their share price quite well and so far my stance has been vindicated with nearly a double in MOH and 30% in TST but the appreciation is long over, IMO.
