2015-06-12 COMMENT Colin Stewart

A controversial stock and maybe one that people don’t pay much attention to anymore, because it fell on such hard times. Have been undergoing a major transformation of shifting from print to digital. More than 50% of their business is now digital. Trading at a very, very low valuation multiple. Some risk, but a lot of reward.

2015-05-20 TOP PICK Paul Gardner, CFA

8% convertible debenture maturing in 2022. Digital is now 55% of this company’s revenue. This is a bond that you can get a 6% rate of return, but you get some upside from the stock which is trading at about 3X EV to EBITDA, and should be trading at 4 or 5 times. The key is paying down their senior debentures which is ahead of convertible debentures, but it is going to get to a point where there are no senior debentures left, with the only debt outstanding being the convertibles. With that you are not only going to get this secure yield of a business that is doing all right, but maybe some upside. You don’t want to pay more than $115 for the bond, because the bid/offer spread is quite large.

2014-10-08 COMMENT Benj Gallander

Owned this when its executives were being overpaid. It was a big loser for him. He had gotten caught up in getting a really good dividend. When dividends are too high, it is a warning sign. They have been transitioning. Did a huge stock consolidation. Doesn’t know the financials well enough to really speak to them. This is a play that you really have to take a good look at the financials and a good look at how quickly you think their digital area is going to continue to grow. How often do you actually look at the Yellow Pages?

2014-09-29 DON'T BUY Norman Levine

A better company than it used to be as it switches to digital.  It is still speculative, however.  There is no certainty that they will survive.

Has a small position. Telephone directory book business is dying while online digital business is growing. Stock is trading below BV, so he likes it, but it is not performing.

2014-03-18 COMMENT Jason Donville

Likes the fact that digital businesses are overtaking paper businesses. Balance sheet looks pretty strong. Not ready to back up the truck as he was to see a few more quarters. There have been some changes in management. This is one he is prepared to grow into but wants to see another quarter. If the quarter looks great, he’ll buy a bit more but will then want to see another quarter.

Has done pretty well. Is beginning to consolidate a little. If it breaks $25-$26, it might be bullish, if it breaks $22-23 he would be concerned.

Has been a great story.  There is some accumulation going on by some bigger players right now.  As soon as it breaks the troughs in the trend line you might consider getting out.

2013-12-10 COMMENT Fabrice Taylor

This is one of those stocks that nobody wanted to hear about. It has now bounced back because they do have pretty prodigious cash flows. The problem is, can they take that dwindling stream of cash and reinvest in something that is more sustainable. The directory business is not sustainable. If you own and have done well, ask yourself if you think they can turn things around by taking the cash, invested in new businesses and new lines of digital income and keep the value.

2013-11-11 DON'T BUY Benj Gallander

Played it three times and got killed the last time.  You really have to think about how far it has moved.  How many people are going to use their media and how much is their digital media growing.

2013-11-05 SPECULATIVE BUY Keith Richards

This was a disaster about a year ago and now there are some signs that the company is trying to invent itself with the new CEO. There has been a breakout with volume on it. For a high risk play, it looks okay. (He owns their bonds.)

2013-06-21 DON'T BUY Peter Hodson

Stock has done very well. Had the restructuring and the consolidation. There is a big group of unhappy former shareholders that didn’t end up with anything. The model has changed and the competitive situation has changed. They might make some money but in terms of a compelling investment, he couldn’t buy into this one.

Declining core business.  Doesn’t see where they will be able to generate enough cash flow in the long run to pay all their debt.

2013-04-01 DON'T BUY Paul Gardner, CFA

He was a debt holder before the restructuring. He sold the equity and the convertibles, but holds the debentures.  Print media is collapsing although not going down as fast as analysts had predicted.  It has restructured into a company with a rational balance sheet.  He likes the bonds but the equity is fully valued.

2013-01-21 PAST TOP PICK Paul Gardner, CFA

(Top Pick Jan 18/12, Up 90%) At the time it was trading at about 40 cents on the dollar, but you are getting well compensated for owning the bond.  There was a restructuring event and you got a combination of cash and equity.  He is going to be transitioning out of them in the next year.
