Net Current Asset Stock STLY

Stanley Furniture (STLY) is a well known brand in the furniture industry. With the stock just around a $1.00 a share it's below net current asset value or quick liquidation value. Because a lot of their assets are in furniture inventory this isn't a true "liquidation" value. The margin of safety would peg the stock much lower than net current assets. This is still a compelling net-net. It is a good one I believe if only because it is not a perennial one. Net current asset stocks that suddenly become this cheap that are retail with a good brand name often work out.

Net current assets are 19.2 mil. Market cap is 16 mil. I read the last quarterly and its just not being managed well. They have some apparently short-term supply chain issues. It's a decent net-net especially if they can turn it around any. Things are going poorly at the moment. They have cashed out life insurance policies to raise cash. This is as much a turnaround play as a value play. That's something to keep in mind.
