I screened with Finviz for companies that trade with a Price/Cash ratio of less than 1 and checked if the companies had any debt. I then calculated the net cash (cash - debt). I wrote an article on August 18 titled "5 Stocks Trading Below Net Cash". Here is a look at five additional companies that trade below the net cash level currently:

1. Linktone (NASDAQ:LTON) is a provider of rich and engaging services and content to a wide range of traditional and new media consumers and enterprises in Mainland China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Singapore. Linktone focuses on media, entertainment, communication and edutainment products, which are promoted through the company's strong nationwide distribution networks, integrated service platforms and multiple marketing sales channels, as well as through the networks of leading mobile operators in Mainland China and Indonesia.

Revenue$31.3 million
Net income$5.7 million
Cash$72.0 million
Debt$0
Net cash$72.0 million
Shares outstanding34.6 million

Outlook

CEO, Xiaobin Liu commented on August 9:

In the near term, we are likely to encounter operating pressure due to a foreseeable increase in labor and lowered bromine price influenced by the nationwide housing price control by the central government. As soon as the economy pass the phase of structural change and the condition, turn favorable, we expect we will be able to benefit from the underground bromine reserve we previously obtained with our equipment and facilities being consistently upgraded. In addition, as the market prices of potential acquisition targets are subjected to undervaluation due to the current economic environment, we will attempt to retain cash in order to take advantage of the market by acquiring quality assets that can enable our company to sustain long term growth in the future.

My analysis

The stock is currently trading at a 49% discount to its net cash per share value. I would recommend buying the shares below the net cash level. I am expecting the company to be profitable for the full-year 2012. I have a long position in the stock.
