This company frequently gets sold off because its quarterly results can vary widely, depending on whether it's leaning more toward investing in new patent portfolios or reaping the royalties of old ones. As a result, "traders" run in and out of it and increase volatility. For "investors," ACTG represents a well-run company with a good business model. Management takes a long-term view, has recently begun paying regular quarterly dividends, and has a buy-back plan in effect. Currently trading toward the bottom of its 52-week range, it represents good value for the patient investor.
