Richardson Electronics: Still Waiting For That Last Puff (NASDAQ:RELL)

Sales Coming Back But Still Not Profitable

Richardson Electronics (NASDAQ:RELL) is a “cigar butt” net current asset value stock as described by Warren Buffett’s mentor Ben Graham. In other words, the company’s market cap is below its current assets minus total liabilities. In theory, even a poorly performing company can be bought and liquidated for greater than the market price. In practice, the discount can persist for a long time, especially if there are barriers to a takeover such as the CEO holding majority voting power. This has been the case with Richardson Electronics, which I first bought in 2016 and have been covering on Seeking Alpha since July 2019. The micro-cap electronic component manufacturer operates in three business units, Power and Microwave Technology, or PMT, custom video display maker Canvys, and Richardson Healthcare. The PMT business is the largest of the three units and is subject to cyclical swings.
