BUY Recommendation-SUPG

SuperGen Inc. (NASDAQ-SUPG)
Valuation-$3.48
Price October 4, 2010-$2.09

Never know what you are going to find when you go hunting for interesting value stocks.

SuperGen is sure interesting. It is a cancer biotech that actually has substantial royalty revenues, $1.79 per share in cash and is profitable ($.09 for the six months this year—not taxed).

Revenues are running just over $40 million a year with NO cost of sales since it is primarily royalty income. There are about 61 million shares outstanding and they have about $109 million in cash.

While SUPG is trading at 61% of our valuation, which is higher than we usually like, 84% of its market cap is in cash and they recently raised their guidance for 2010. They are working with Eisai and Johnson & Johnson on Phase III trials, which if successful will increase revenues.

What is not to like?

Average trading volume is only about 250,000 shares a day.
