On CAPS, 97% of the 816 members who have rated Nam Tai believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include bombaseed and easyeta.
Earlier this week, bombaseed tapped Nam Tai as a particularly timely pick:
Seemed to be turning a corner, but recent Japan earthquake has triggered big share price weakness of late. Good entry point for a cash-rich, debt-free, shareholder-friendly, dividend-paying company. What's not to like?
In fact, Nam Tai currently boasts $228 million in cash on its balance sheet, with no debt. Meanwhile, listed rivals Flextronics, Jabil, and Sanmina sport debt-to-equity ratios of 0.97, 0.68, and 1.82, respectively.
CAPS member easyeta expands on Nam Tai's outperform case:
Excellent Cash Position ($5.09 per share) limits risk; Stock is trading well under Book Value despite being profitable. The risk (and perhaps opportunity) has [arisen] because of a possible supply side interruption from Japanese earthquake(s). Nam Tai also pays a dividend of $0.20 per share, which adds value to an already great buy.
