Value Based Mean Reversion Candidate within Home Furnishings Industry

Last week I added shares of tiny micro cap Stanley Furniture (STLY). STLY trades at 52 week low and has a 1996 market value. Recent and continued negative financial performance affected the price decline. Furthermore, strong financial position, revenue and gross profits to the current enterprise value justify further investigation. Additionally deep value attributes has attracted John Rogers founder of Ariel Capital Management. 

The current market value is 44.04M with cash 17.22M, revenue 96.96M, GP 9.77M and a negative 52 week price change of -36.00%. Stanley Furniture founded in 1924 is based North Carolina.
