I saw a nice article in this weeks Barrons by DAVID ENGLANDER on why this stock is undervalued:http://online.barrons.com/article/SB50001424052748704356104578326213349162322.html?mod=BOL_twm_fsHere are the key numbers of the company's assets:Real Estate $910 millionOil & Gas $286 millionWater $113 millionMiscellaneous Assets $30 millionTotal Value of Assets $1.3 billionLess Net Debt -$284 millionNet Asset Value $1.05 billionNet Asset Value/Share $30.00Recent Price $17.56Sources: JMP Securities; Thomson Reuters; company reports .With its well-positioned acreage, Forestar is benefiting from a rebound in builder demand for finished residential lots. Last year, it sold 1,365 developed lots, a 22% increase from 2011. Average profit margins on lots have risen 11%, which helped boost real-estate earnings to $54 million for the year, from a loss of $26 million in 2011. Management expects to sell 1,900 lots this year, a 39% increase.
This group is strong enough in performance.
