Good solid company but demand now is low. Think it will just follow the market...

Very tightly controlled by insiders and with a high short interest this company publishes a variety of scientific, technical, medical and scholarly journals as well as reference books and database services. The company is selling at a very reasonable 12x earnings and 15X free cash flow with a PEG ratio of 1.4. They have a solid history of dividend growth and with a payout ratio of less than 40% there's plenty of room for increases.

I'm a doctoral student and use Wiley services (online journals, etc.) all the time. Their variety of print and online publications give them a solid moat against competition and their products are necessary to a number of sectors (e.g., education, psychology) in good times and bad. Great dividend is a bonus.

Hold for dividend income, not price appreciation. Long term 10 year performance has been 300%

Very high free cash flow generation, and very consistent. Very high ROIC. It's selling at about a 30% discount to the present value of future FCFs. It's a very stable company in a very stable sector (medical & scientific journals, "For Dummies" books, etc.). A company of this quality and consistency should not be selling at this big a discount.
