(A Top Pick Dec 31/07. Down 49%.) Much more levered to some new products than what he would have imagined. As long as you believe there is an economic/stock market recovery this will probably outperform on the upside from here. Hold.

Paying a special dividend along with the regular distribution this month. Almost $3 a share in cash. Sold a bunch of divisions off and what’s left is a little bit of real estate (which they are selling), a very small junior oil/gas producer and a whole pile of cash. Nice place to hide. 18% yield.
