Proven niche business model at a bit high price to book, but still will outperform given the divvy yield. 13.

In a strong (and possibly peaking) market, Medalliion still maintains an attractive yield and very reasonable P/E. Although their revenue growth has been somewhat lackluster over the past three years, their EPS and Divident growth are looking good.

I won't buy for the real portfolio, because I don't like that if there were to be some new sweeping regulation regarding taxis this company could be wiped out. But it's certainly worth a caps pick.

In the 1930s, one taxi cost only $10. Now it costs $1m+.

I am heavily involved in the ground transportation industry in NYC. I believe that firms involved in the finance of taxicab medallions and vehicles are about to break out from the grips of the recession and move substantially higher in the coming years.

I have always wanted to somehow own a share of taxi fares. I had no idea this company existed. The only downside I can see to the share price is that there are an awful lot of farepayers like me. Taxi medallions are cash cows and medallion financing is where all the money goes after gas.

Great dividend play, great ROI, solid industry, and not expensive.

Excellent dividend which has a solid track record. I don't believe the stock will make a big move in either direction but I see a slight upward drift and a nice dividend to cushion any downside.

Financials with solid books will come out stronger in the end of this bear market. With its unique customer base, Medallion will continue to be a leader. The dividend is a fantastic cake topper.

They have a lock on the taxi medallions, P/E under 10, good dividend yield at the current price

Market Edge Long. Cheap, solid, decent dividend. Strange business but, based in NYC it looks like a decent niche to be in. Oversold.

Yes, it's a financial, but it hasn't taken the same hit that the bigger financial co.s have. I'm thinking that medallions are going to get harder and harder to afford...

Trading just around book value after Friday's close, PE stands near 11, both trailing and forward. PEG ratio hovers around 1.25. Stock took a dive recently, I have faith in it coming around, at least short term.

....and originates consumer loans for the purchase of recreational vehicles, boats and horse trailers....
I see consumer spending down in this area for at least the near term.

A niche BDC. Kinda expensive at p/e of 25. However, with a stable portfolio of loans and a good dividend this niche player should outperform.
