  • These numbers look good. Another increase in NAV to $16.62 is great to see. With the significant gap between the share price and NAV the goal and opportunity is to close this gap.

  • That has been the trend for so long now - the share prices haven't come lose to matching the NAV, despite all the stock repurchases.

  • That has been the story for a while now- share price does not match the NAV, despite the stock buybacks. Wonder when we will see a sustained uptick?

  • Yes, I agree that this has been the same story. It's difficult to get enthusiastic. I have to believe it's an opportunity but I've said this before on ACAS. Without a dividend to relieve the pain we have to be compensated with a higher share price.

  • Also, many feel people burned by management since the days of 07 and 08 with the dividend suspension.

  • Investors are always suspicious of buy backs..To much opportunity for hanky panky. They want to see a good ol div payment, that's why I think ACAS needs to begin thinking about ways to outright reward the long patient stock owners.

  • If shares outstanding continue to shrink, then the value of my shares, all things being equal will rise. Works for me. We have perhaps another year of wobbly stock performance then the climb higher should become more persistant.

  • Well I am also long and long suffering ACAS. Also finally in the green again, but getting no div love. I was looking at AGNC which is the REIT of the same company and paying a gynormous dividend..Perhaps now is the time to diversify a little.
