Gravity Company, LTD. (NASDAQ–GRVY)
Closing price January 15, 2010-$1.68
With the rise in the markets, and the generally worse performance of most companies, it is hard to find stocks that we think are truly undervalued. Even though Gravity is a foreign stock, we think it fits the bill.
As of September 30, 2009, Gravity had $2.17 per share of cash and was slightly profitable. Our valuation is $5.15 per share so it is trading at 42% of our valuation and at 77% of cash.
Aside from being a foreign stock and relatively unknown, Gravity has been dogged by litigation. All of the material lawsuits were resolved at the end of 2009, so this “black cloud” is gone.
With excess cash, a huge market that it addresses we would be surprised if some transaction does not happen in the next 12 months—special dividend, buy-out, etc.
It the stock can get to only trading AT cash value per share, we have a 30% gain.
GRVY trades over 62,000 shares a day, so liquidity is not a huge issue.
There are about 28 million fully diluted ADR’s outstanding.
