I'm not really big on the oil and gas industry, but this small cap company has an earning to book value that is quite nice. The PE for this company also makes it quite attractive. They have been beaten down a bit these last few months and although I don't believe in timing the market, It just think that it will be hard for this to get much lower. This would allow one to make a triple play. Buy a good stock when it is down, hold on for a year or two checking that their revenues are still in line and sell if they become over priced. The revenue growth these last few quarters have been really nice, but not up to street expectations, but I believe this would be a nice addition to my portfolio if they can keep it up. Also, the assets value has been growing for this company so they are using their profits to acquire more assets, if they can keep their profit efficiently turning out revenue then it all adds up to a growing company in the long run. Also, they are not a large company, so there is a good chance they can eventually double in size or get bought out by a competitor looking to expand.
