I've covered JVA on the blog for many years and shared my honest thoughts on the company. It's been so beaten down in this bear market it is now at .62% of net current asset value. In the past it would bottom out around net tangible asset value. This is one of those rarer cases where a profitable or recently former profitable company becomes a net current asset value stock. If you are new to deep value the net current asset stocks get their attention because of famous investor Ben Graham who taught Warren Buffett. Net current asset value is a rought liquidation value of the whole company. Of course the true liquidatoin value is usually lower given the inventory and equipment and long-term assets are likely going to fetch less than on the books. They are usually priced so cheap for a reason too.
JVA is now merging with another company. I read the SEC filing and I'm still not sure of exactly what JVA shareholders get for the transaction. The company they are merging with is private so I don't know anything about them.
Disclosure: I have a position in JVA
