The Ben Graham: Net-Net Newsletter’s June’s picks was first profiled two years ago. Recent events have made the company much more attractive, especially after the company engaged an investment bank to explore a sale, or asset divesture.

The newsletter is ready for download for GuruFocus Premium Members. If you are not a Premium Member, you are invited for a Free 7-Day Trial.

This month’s pick:

· NCAV of $5.98 per share against a last trade of $4.58.

· While reporting headline losses, the company generated operating cash flow.

· The company has hired an investment bank to explore strategic alternatives, including the sale of a division, or the sale of the entire company.

· The CEO stated on the latest conference call that he believes they could liquidate receivables and their real estate at book value if they needed to.

· Poor results and a court judgment from a subsidiary are masking the company’s turnaround progress.

“It always seemed, and still seems, ridiculously simple to say that if one can acquire a diversified group of stocks at a price less than the applicable net current assets alone...the results should be quite satisfactory. They were so, in our experience, for more than 30 years.”- Ben Graham

What’s a Net-Net?

A net current asset value bargain—or net-net—is a stock selling for less than the value of its current assets—cash, receivables, and inventory—minus all liabilities. Basically, it’s a stock selling for less than its liquidation value.
