Let's see the damage:
Berkshire Hathaway is getting close to my "good deal" threshold. If it hits that point and I don't see anything else, I might start buying more.
ValueClick is $15.42. Was $18.78 when I last looked at it. Will it go to $13?
POSCO is still at $102. Not interested.
Korea Fund is at $46.55. Getting a bit interesting. Will it go to $40?
Container leasing companies:
CAP is $15.61, this might be cheap now.
TGH is $22.79, will it go to $16? Not a bad deal now.
BOX is $13.27, no opinion
TAL is $27.09, will it go to $25?
ACY is $13.90, this needs to get real cheap before I'm particularly interested. Wake me when it hits $5.
AAON is $18.41, not a bad deal. But will it fall below $15?
FLL is $2.81, but I just don't know about this one.
Forget CCLAY. I'd rather own the real thing, KO, which is at $65.82. $40 would be good.
It's always tough to know what's cheap enough. I remember back in 2002, when I could pass over things that were cheap in favor of things insanely cheap. I remember thinking that McDonald's at $15 is probably really, really cheap. It was! $84 today.
Chuck E Cheese reported results today. The stock is $35.73. Comps are up slightly. Food costs are up somewhat. Operating margin is down to 7.0% from 8.1% a year earlier. Etc. I'm not too concerned about their quarterly results. In fact, I'd prefer to see a real downturn in their earnings to scare investors away. Will it hit $23 a share?
Hot Topic is at... no one really knows where they're at. $7.20. I figured they might be worth $13 a share if they turn the business around. I'd want a price like $4 before I'd think about it.
Buckeye Technologies BKI is at $24. Bzzzzt!
It's a start.
