Editor's notes: RET.A.TO sits near 5-year lows due to recent struggles, but fund manager Saj Karsan sees lots of value. Strong free cash flow and regression potential for margins suggest major upside.

As Reitmans (OTCPK:RTMAF) has seen declining same-store sales and reduced profitability, shares of the profitable retailer have been battered as of late, now down 50% from their year-ago levels. As a result, the company now trades for less than half of its sales, despite a strong net cash position representing one-third of the company's market cap. Furthermore, Reitmans is run by a management team with a strong track record that has implemented a number of initiatives to return margins to normal.

*Note that the company also trades in Canada under the much more liquid RET.A
