We need to be careful as the working capital might not be worth much. Remember they make perfumes. They got a new CEO and his options strike price is $5.00. I like that

The reason why I bought this, historically they did not make money due to high capital expenditures. I am hoping they will behave smartly now. Tilson has taken a position on this fund. I am hoping Tilson will make sure that the management behaves in a share holder interest. Let's see what happens. I always like value funds taking positions in my pick as they have the clout to make management behave in a certain manner.
