WOR is undervalued. It pays a good dividend, and has a profit margin. It is only $4 above its 52 wk low.

WOR has a pension fund that is underfunded by about $1 Billion dollars and they only avg about 100M and 165M in cash flow in during boom years. So the $1B underfunded pension (using WOR aggressive accounting -the real underfunding could be much higher).

Even if the stock market does 8% a year for the next 10 years the pension underfunding will remain at $1B.

the pension issue could take away most of their profits for the next decade unless the market recovers.

Further the steel industry will remain under severe pressure for the next 18 months or longer so at 14x forward earnings WOR looks expensive.

I work for Worthington in the Cylinder division and although we are automating processes, the management is very poor and does not listen to their employees ideas. Unless you are in the maintenence dept or a manager, your voice means little to nothing. It's an old boy school atmosphere where they challenge their employees but more importantly, don't challenge or change their managers. Our quality is getting bad because of the automation and the employees being ignored for years.They have an elitism type attitude that comes down from the top. Managers are chosen within the ranks from "yes men". I can think of only one who has a college degree. Our opportunity for improvement box, clearly out there for everyone to see is spelled oppurtunity. Go in and check it out..... They don't even have the guts to drug test the managers. Need I say more??????
