  • Sculptor Capital has had a shaky history over a legal dispute. Settled in 2020, the main damper on the stock has been removed leaving an attractable company cheaply priced.
  • There have been several changes towards the company's leaders, names, performance, and ratings.
  • As of May, AUM has slightly decreased to $36.8 billion or the exact same level as the end of 2020.
  • In a partnership with Diamond Communications LLC, Melody Wireless was acquired for $1.625 billion. This affects Diamond more in its stance as a communications tower company, but should still be addressed.

I am an individual investor who prioritizes buy-and-hold, investing for the long term, diversifying, and above all, keeping your head when all others are losing theirs. I look to find undervalued larger companies who are readily profitable, return average to above average growth, and have promising futures.

Any ideas why SCU is melting that much each day?

@Raul LT Sentiment has soured for the moment I'm guessing because funds are underperforming this year and AUM not growing and CEO seemed to guide conservatively for next quarter. So 2021 just not a great year for the company. It's a volatile stock but I think its undervalued here for sure.

Excellent write up thank you for all the detail. I like money management companies and this one seems to be restarting itself with huge amounts of assets under management and with their role in alternative assets like real estate that is a strategic opportunity for them. I agree with the comments that this seems to be a nice value opportunity. I am long and will likely continue to add when opportunity presents.

Thanks for the article Sigma Evaluation, I’ll follow you for more. Your $30 target for SCU seems conservative as they were almost there pre-pandemic, but it’s a lumpy business which is still in ‘show me’ mode for many investors. Many other stocks have bounced back to (or exceeded) pre-pandemic levels so Sculptor stands out as a relative value opportunity. I’m long and will continue to add on pullbacks. GLTA

Agreed, lots of upside.
