What to like:

Underpriced compared to book value

The stock is trading low compared to its peers on a price to book value basis and is in the top quartile. It may be underpriced but do check its financial performance to make sure there is no specific reason.

Positive free cash flow

The company had positive total free cash flow in the most recent four quarters.

What to not like:
Low market capitalization
