  • iRobot: A Stock With Opportunities [View article]
    The Roomba 800 Series is the best robotic vacuum cleaner you can buy right now. Early adapters want quality (performance) and iRobot is giving it to them.

    The robotic vacuum has made inroads into the overall vacuum market since Roomba's inception in 2002 and now constitutes about 18% of the global industry (defined as vacuums over $200 a piece), up from 5% in 2009.

    Entering the robotic vacuum market is not an easy task because the leaders (read: iRobot) in the space have many patents that they can play out. One of the ways to enter the market is by means of M&A activity.

  • iRobot: A Stock With Opportunities [View article]
    Because of its scalable cost structure, iRobot should be able to continue expanding profitability as deliveries increase.

    IRobot's RP-VITA and AVA 500 telepresence robots offer a new avenue for growth outside of the firm's core consumer space.

    The main argument ("next big thing") is that I think iRobot will be taken over by someone with deeper pockets. A company that doesn't want to start from scratch with robotic vacuum cleaners (Electrolux, Dyson, Samsung) and wants to add a certain market share to their current offerings.

  • Tetragon Financial Group: A Heavily Undervalued CLO Manager [View article]
    Tetragon considers a buyback always a dynamic opportunity for their available cash. The only thing they don't mention is certain numbers (amounts).

    To be honest I really have no idea how large the buyback and the issuing is going to be going forward.

  • NQ Mobile: It Can't All Be A Scam, Can It? [View article]
    When the dust settles, favorably, a company with 40% revenue growth, 30% operating margins valued at 4x earnings, should be hard for investors to ignore. The company's uncertainties are overly exaggerated.

    I think they will do some restatements in the end. The "Fraud" word in the China investment space is nowadays widely accepted and used. Everything that is different or questionable is already considered "Fraud".

  • Update: American Lorain Earnings [View article]
    I am still invested in some Chinese stocks, but I agree with you that it's is difficult to weed out the "legitimate" ones.

  • Willi-Food: A Ridiculously Cheap Food Company [View article]
    If the company can achieve considerable growth outside Israel and migitate their lackluster performance in Israel the stock could be a double from here. I totally agree with the fact that the Kosher food market is growing at warp speed outside Israel. There is were the opportunities are for G. Willi.

  • Update: Kingold Jewelry Earnings [View article]
    It has indeed a VIE-structure (contractual agreement) like many Chinese businesses. This is of course a bigger risk, then when the company owns the business themselves.

  • Update: Sino Agro Food Earnings [View article]
    Just send me the "whistleblower" report, so I can decide for myself if the company is a complete fraud.

    But I totally agree with you that investors lost their faith in this company, but also in most other China small caps. I sold my shares when I saw that related party loan issue in their 10-K.

    Personally I think management learned from this big red flag, that' s why the board implemented remedial actions:
    - They immediately adopted a resolution requiring board approval for any transaction greater than $250,000 and
    - They are exploring other actions which include enhanced reporting procedures for material transactions below $250,000 and recruiting qualified professionals with experience in non-routine and complex transactions.

    I am waiting for a sustainable dividend policy before I buy these shares again. Despite that, I think the current stock price is a steal for high-risk oriented investors that know the pitfalls of investing in Chinese stocks.

    I agree with your thesis, but I looked at the book value of the company. That's why my short time (<1 year) target is a four bagger.

    In your case we are looking to a company with a market cap of more than $7.6 billion.

    Kingold Jewelry (NASDAQ:KGJI) is in the gold jewelry business, so that is a big difference than the normal jewelry business. They design and manufacture 24-karat gold jewelry, ornaments, and investment-oriented products.
