The GuruFocus 52-week low screener reveals some fascinating companies that are way off a 52-week high; they have no billionaire investors, and no insider trading to report, qualifying them as wild card wonders (because they make us wonder). This week’s wild card wonders include: Pharmaxis Ltd. (PXSLY) off 90.7%, Hakuhodo Dy Holdings Incorporated (HKUOY) off 88.4%, and Mitsubishi UFJ Lease & Finance Co. Ltd. (MIUFY) off 86.9%. MIUFY lists a yield of 7%. Here are two more companies on a 52-week low and they are backed by billionaire investors. In fact, four billionaire investors made new buys and two gurus upped their stakes significantly in defense contractor SAIC Inc. in the second quarter of 2013.

Sally,

Does SAIC trade under another symbol other than SAI. When I type SAI in on Yahoo it comes up NaN for last trade.

Thanks.

GT
