What is his view on one of his biggest holdings Fortress international group(FIGI) since the stock price/balance sheet assets value plummeted from his purchase? Does he thinks the management is doing a reasonable job?

Thanks for conducting the interview. I would also be interested to hear his latest thoughts on Fortress International.

I found this company through a screen I built searching for companies selling below net cash. I sat down and looked through the companies past 10k over the last ten years and found enough information on the company to take a position. I don't mind the volatility as it allows me to purchase more of the company. With Ben Graham's chapter on shareholder management relationship in mind, What is your opinion as to a fair approach of going about a reconciliation toward the company's intrinsic value from the markets current valuation? I debated back and forth between a share buy back program using cash on hand and future cash flow and/or setting a dividend that is proportionate to the company's liquidating value. At the company's current pace of holding cash and using it for purchasing certificates of deposit, I do not see it as being a good allocation of capital, though having some cash is good as it has helped the company going into the recession there is some excess cash that should be better allocated.

Thank you for your time and your suggestions if any.

Regards Owen
