Thanks to Sam and Shaan over at My First Million podcast for talking about this one. I would say it’s probably not a great investment, but it is trading at a discount to net current assets, which was one of Ben Graham’s favorite indicators for margin of safety. Revenues are still growing and if you based it only on the fact that it has $23 million in net current assets vs a market cap of $9 million it is a steal circa 1900’s trading philosophy. There’s a reason Warren Buffett moved away from this strategy. Maybe Laird will continue to grow and focus on the business not the stock price, but only buy this cigar butt if you are prepared for any outcome – good or bad.
