I don't know if this is deeply undervalued, or just a cigar butt. Either way, it's tough to turn down a stock selling at half of net tangible assets while the company still turns a profit. Books-A-Million also doesn't have the debt burden that killed… More

Frankly, I can't believe Books-A-Million has lasted this long. Borders was a better, cleaner, more fully-realized concept, and it long ago went the way of the dodo. The only way to compete with online convenience & pricing is with superior customer service, and my experience with B-A-M tells me they're not ready.

I don't know if this is deeply undervalued, or just a cigar butt. Either way, it's tough to turn down a stock selling at half of net tangible assets while the company still turns a profit. Books-A-Million also doesn't have the debt burden that killed Borders.

Book stores are on the decline, but I don't think they'll completely disappear.

With a P/E around 6 and selling below book, this stock is so cheap right now that it is almost impossible not to do well, despite the slow or no growth. It offers good yield and has a great balance sheet.
