Revenue used as key valuation metric

JVA and UACL are far from perfect but the market maybe ignoring the current disconnect from fair price based on intrinsic and comparative valuations.
Some of the additional attributes used to help find new ideas are mentioned below. The search started by looking at the EV/Revenue averages from 2005 to 2009. I then ranked the % ratio improvement based on the current EV/Revenue versus the average (2005 to 2009). The next step was only to further investigate those names with a current EV/Revenue less than 2009’s measure.

Balance sheet strength was also captured by selecting only companies with an EV/Market capitalization < 1.40. The names also needed to show an improving capital structure. Shares outstanding and /or debt reduction from 2005 to the TTM.

Quarterly year over year revenue growth
EV/Revenue < .50

Hi Teresa

my goal is providing value based ideas. As a DWCH shareholder for some time I believe it will take time to realize the full potential. It may be tough the next quarter or two but i could be wrong.

Good luck
