  • California First National Bancorp Is Undervalued [View article]
    Nice article and good find but forget the earnings and income statement. Look at the balance sheet. CFNB is an excellent investment. It's a very well run bank that sells at 90% Tangible book value, has a 35% Tangible Equity to Assets Ratio (insanely high), less than 1% non-performing loans, more than enough loan loss reserves set aside, and solid ROA and ROE numbers. As a bonus the CEO is in his 60s so I believe that increases the possibility of a takeover. I think all of this provides a pretty healthy margin of safety. I bought it a few months ago and plan on holding onto it for a while.

    There are literally 50 other banks that are just as good as this one to invest in. Anyone interested can check them out at http://seekingalpha.co...
