With the constant publicity associated with collectibles that continues to generate interest in them through T.V. shows like "Pawn Stars", "American Pickers" and "Antiques Roadshow", I think this might be a lucrative albeit high-risk play that you will want to DUMP MUY PRONTO at the hint of a market correction or crash and buy into again once the bad news does its damage.

Caps starting price $14.34:

I have watched this company for a long time with great interest. It is a very small cap company - a market cap of about $112 million. It is small. Earnings had some one-time charges and they discontinued part of their business so Net income is down from last year. However, Cash flow was up from last year which is important since they pay a $1.30 per year in dividends which gives them a 9.1% yield.

Now I am sure you are thinking well that dividend is going to be dropped or lowered. And they may lower it. But their financials are solid. Last year, they paid out $9.944 million in dividends and made $9.808 million in cash flow. They have no debt and $21.926 million in cash. But if they wanted to lower the dividend even by 50%, it would still be a solid dividend yield which they could easily afford.

There are problems – They are dependent on the economy. Their growth is suspect, but they should be able to pay a strong dividend. There are no analysts following the company, so one has to piece together the history of the company.
I believe they provide a very important service to the collectible industry. I think this little company may help me monitor a key piece of macro information.

I know there are others that have CLCT on caps. I will be writing a full page report on them in time. This one highly interests me for many reasons

High, very well covered yield. With the major rise in silver and gold there will be a huge increase in coin sales. CLCT should see a dramatic rise in revenue and will return this to shareholders with dividend boosts. They can already afford to do it, but are being conservative with thier cash position.

Nothing fancy here. As a former card collector, the PSA grading system is the most trusted. What's more, in the card world it becomes hard to buy/sell cards without a grading system to objectify a gut feeling about the condition of the card. Now they are in the coin business too. And 8% dividend yield.

CLCT relies heavily on only a small handful of clients to generate the vast majority of their revenue. Losing any one of these clients would have a far reaching affect on the company's bottom line. The diamond grading business could also prove to be a difficult path of acquiring clients, as the diamond industry would have to ultimately accept them as a market standard. Unlike dealers of coins or baseball cards, gemologists are generally highly trained and certified experts and may not take to the idea of someone else meddling in their job.

Contributing to a possible downfall is the fact that PSA, their card grading division, recently received publicity as the imfamous Honus Wagner baseball card they had authenticed and graded was sold for $2.35M. However, a book ("The Card" by Michael O'keeffe) is set for release in May 2007 which will be exposing the fact that the $2.35M Wagner is nothing more than a reprint created in the 1950's, and is altered on top of that. Depending on the fallout, PSA could face a tremendous amount of negative publicity and/or face a costly legal case.
