Second Magic Formula Newsletter Pick Acquired: KSW

Late Friday afternoon, KSW Inc. (KSW) announced that it will be acquired for $5 per share. This represents a healthy premium of ~23% to the Friday’s closing price and an outstanding 56% premium to the price the Magic Formula newsletter paid for its shares ($3.16).

This marks the second investment the newsletter has had acquired. Our first was Access Plans (APNC), which we picked up last July and was acquired in June for a >50% gain.

In addition, our pick from January is currently “in play”, with their major shareholder offering to acquire the company and asking the board to consider the proposal or look into strategic alternatives.

This all points to one thing: our strategy of investing in micro-cap companies with high ROICs trading for rock bottom valuations is paying off! Our portfolio is up over 22% since we started the portfolio last May, and several of our picks still look incredibly undervalued. Our next pick comes out this Friday (September 14) and is one of our most interesting picks to date, so be sure to check it out!

As a shareholder of KSW I think management is getting a better deal then current shareholders. Thats a main problem with most small cap. companies.

nevertheless:

Magic formula newsletter is great!
