Consolidated Tomoka – Seeking Alpha Pro Article
|August 24, 2014||Posted by Nat Stewart under Compounding Machines||
I decided to publish my latest article at Seeking Alpha under the “Pro” moniker, and was fortunate to have it selected as a “Top Pro” idea on August 15th. I can’t re-post it here because it is the property of Seeking Alpha, as I accepted compensation for it. I chose this route because I wanted to see if publishing as part of SA “Pro” would increase the number and quality of the article’s readers. So far I am relatively pleased with the feedback and exposure.
It was published just as I was heading out on vacation, and as the stock is now pulling back a bit I figured now was a decent time to post a link to it on my personal site here.
Here is the intro or teaser:
- A hidden asset rich company (balance sheet land values are 100+ years out of date) with significant catalysts to realize value, yet still under-appreciated by investors.
- Upcoming land sales, including 76 acres for a Trader Joe’s distribution center (set to close in the third quarter), should substantially accelerate the company’s transition to an income-producing company.
- A motivated and highly experienced CEO on track to make a name for himself within the investor community.
- Purchase and sale agreements for 16% of the company’s land have been signed with a total value of over $50 million, vs. the company’s market cap of only $280 million.
If you have not read it yet and are not a SA Pro subscriber, make sure to do soon, as it will end up in their premium content library.
My SWKH Article (an idea which has worked out well so far – up about 30% after an announced capital raise at 1.37) did not get many views. In a sense that is OK, as it was a very small capitalization idea – yet more readers is still better than less. I continue to look for different channels to distribute my articles – particularly ones that have a high quality readership. If you have any ideas, email me.
Also, I am “on the prowl” for new stocks in the small-cap space to invest in and write about. I like “GARP” stocks and stocks where news or a special situation does not appear to be fully factored into the stock price. If you have a potential idea or would like to trade ideas, you can email me about that as well. (I do not do PR work – do not contact with such offers).
