A Lucky 7 Portfolio with Big Upside

Here are some nice, bargain priced issues that are highly profitable and cheap right now. I own shares in all of them as well as being short puts on each as well.



Famous Dave’s of America
– Casual dining

Genco Shipping and Trading – Drybulk transportation

Rick’s Cabaret – Adult Entertainment

Myers Industries – Industrial Polymers

Stein Mart – Off-price retailing

Calamos Asset Management – Investment Advisory Services

Ciber – Information Technology Services



Here’s some capsule data on each;

Ticker Price 2010 Est. 2011 Est. P/E 2010 P/E 2011 Yield 52-wk Range
Dave $8.15 $0.71 $0.85 11.5x 9.6x 0% $5.07 – $9.69
GNK $15.62 $4.17 $2.60 3.8x 6.0x 0% $15.17 -$29.20
RICK $8.20 $0.93 $1.18 8.8x 6.9x 0% $5.50 - $16.05
MYE $7.99 $0.66 $0.87 12.1x 9.2x 3.25% $7.21 - $11.55
SMRT $6.70 $0.69 $0.79 9.7x 8.5x 0% $6.50 - $13.75
CLMS $8.86 $0.89 $1.00 10.0x 8.9x 3.61% $8.79 - $15.33
CBR $2.70 $0.23 $0.32 11.8x 8.5x 0% $2.69 - $4.50


Each of these is well below their 52-week highs and trades at a well below typical P/E based on its own past valuation history. All seven have single digit P/Es based on their consensus estimates for 2011. Two have current yields better than most T-bonds and bank CDs.

GNK, CBR, SMRT and CLMS each touched new 52-week lows in today’s trading.

I’ve written up some of these previously on www.BeatingBuffett.com.

Do your own due diligence and you may find these to be to your liking as well.
