Why Fortress Investments Is Extremely Undervalued Management is shareholder friendly with good dividend and stock buybacks
Fortress Investments (NYSE:FIG) shares are tremendously undervalued. The firm trades at a deep discount to a reasonable value even though it is recently showing growth in revenues, EPS and balance sheet value. It is also transitioning from the legacy private equity model into a permanent capital model. Management looks like it is very shareholder friendly with signficant dividend payouts and stock buybacks being executed. The firm has a total of $70 billion of assets under management, although the configuration isn’t ideal. There is a lot of upside earnings potential because of embedded value investments and optionality because of incentive payouts. Read more...

Fortress Investment Group LLC was founded in 1998. It operates as a global alternative asset manager, which raises, invests and manages private equity funds and hedge funds. The Company's current offering of alternative investment products includes private equity funds, liquid hedge funds and hybrid funds. Private equity funds generally require fund investors to commit capital over a period of time, do not allow redemptions of capital and make long term, relatively illiquid investments. Hedge funds allow periodic contributions and redemptions of capital by investors and make relatively shorter-term, more liquid investments. Hybrid funds share certain of the characteristics of both private equity and hedge funds. The Company managed alternative assets in three core businesses: Private equity business is made up mainly of a series of funds named the 'Fortress Investment Funds' and organized to make control-oriented investments in cash flow generating, asset-based businesses in North America and Western Europe. The liquid hedge funds, which invest daily in markets around the globe, seek to exploit opportunities in global currency, interest rate, equity and commodity markets and their related derivatives. The Company's hybrid hedge funds are designed to exploit pricing anomalies that exist between the public and private finance markets. These investment opportunities are often found outside the traditional broker-dealer mediated channels in which investments that are efficiently priced and intermediated by large financial institutions are typically presented to the private investment fund community. The Company has developed a proprietary network comprised of internal and external resources to exclusively source transactions for the funds. The investment management industry is intensely competitive, and it expects the competition to intensify in the future. The Company faces competition in the pursuit of outside investors for its investment funds, acquiring investments in attractive portfolio companies and making other investments. The Company's business is subject to extensive regulation in the United States and in the other countries in which its investment activities occur.
