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.

ACTG has been in my portfolio a year or so, but stays close to 69% value growth each day, over what I paid originally.

When you talk about patent licensing firms you probably think of Rambus. Acacia is just like the former with an experienced team of executives acquiring new patents left and right.

Acacia has been increasing it's patent portfolio every Quarter and Revenues are up 50% Year Over Year.

Intellectual Property is big business with more and more companies rushing to claim ownership of their technologies. Due to losing a recent court case the stock trades at a discount.

If anything, pick this one up for CAPS.

Acacia has recently reached positive agreements/settlements with AOL & Trend Micro... It has also recently entered into license agreements with Toshiba Corporation and Siemens. Since Acacia Research completed its split with CombiMatrix Corporation in August of 2007, it is poised to take advantage its patent protection and patent licensing focus...

ACTG sells well-below the fair value of probable cash flows from its existing IP (intellectual property) portfolios. The company currently has 5-6 home-run type patent portfolios, any of which could generate more in license revenue than it's entire revenue base of last year. Even better, it is acquiring additional patent portfolios, in most cases, with no capital commitment. It is a difficult company to analyze and value for professional investors based on traditional methods, limiting demand for institutional ownership, which has helped keep the stock at bargain levels. For an investor that can hold on for a couple of years to see ACTG's patent portfolio turn into licesensing revenue, it would be hard to find a better stock for risk vs reward investment.
