LookSmart (LOOK)

The stock (LOOK) continues to move higher after an introduction on March 27 and closed Friday up 16.95% at $1.38 only after falling back from the intraday high of $1.55. Here was the original post “New Ben Graham Net Net Idea”

He discusses the cheapness of LOOK as we discussed. Net cash, NOL, patented technology , employees but read the entire article for yourself.
