Short squeeze might push this past $20 here pretty soon. Reminds me of Volkswagen when Porsche bought a huge position that covered the short float.

While Blyth's main business (home decor candles) is not an earth-shattering business, its hard-to-find-almost-wholly-owned subsidiary Visalus is a rocket ship with 22 months of consecutive sales growth and on track for a billion a year in sales come the next couple years. That coupled with a recent $20m purchase by the company CEO make this a silent superstar.

price to sales is so low. Yield is very high. The sales could drop and this would still be a good buy.

Trying to catch the readjustment following their reverse stock split (which was alternatively 1 to 4 or 1 to 3), Blyth jumped well over 400%. Figure that over excitement over their reduction of outstanding shares has significantly inflated stock value.

Company's profitability remains constant despite lower sales showing a reduction in costs and higher margins.

Currently still paying good dividends, low debt, and trading near a two year low.

This company is trying to purchase it's own stock. 0.65 eps this quarter? You wish more likely < 0.6$ and after this quarter company will be struggling for the rest of the yr.

Not to mention that company tends to do "investments" which gives them losses.

The PartyLite segment of the business (think Tupperware for candles) ought to continue to perform well. My wife is a buyer of PartyLite products and she loves how they brighten her day. (Pun intended!)

The direct marketing aspect of the business, while a turnoff on Wall Street, means that the sales force is highly motivated. Blyth has recently been investing in two more direct marketing businesses.

But currently Blyth is being weighed down by restructuring costs in other parts of the company (wholesale in Europe) and rising costs of raw material such as paraffin wax. These problems are temporary and in a few years management ought to be able to turn things around. A spinoff might unlock value at some point.
