Value metrics vs ind are excellent. Modest debt. Will benefit from rising interest rates (whenever that happens).

Calamos' funds are doing poorly, but they're making shareholders rich.

Cash and investments dominate the balance sheet, which is great. The downside is that public shareholders lack real voting power, with the founding family controlling 97.4% of the voting interest.

Even still, I look at this as a play on the balance sheet with a nearly-free operating company on top.

I like the numbers on this one...Solid earnings, very little debt, consistent dividend payer. I liked it as it dipped from 11 towards 10, bought when it ducked into the $9 range. A bounce back up to $12 seems likely.

I'm interested in this one, not quite ready to commit my own cash as I'd prefer it cheaper, but I think that this is a pretty good price. Any sort of sustained double digit earnings growth from here and this will be a nice investment. Double digit growth seems very reasonable against recent history. Balance sheet is excellent. Calamos clan owns 77% of the company though so they have complete control. This could be a good or bad thing. Hopefully the price can come down to where it is attractive for real money.
