This hardly trades at all. Insiders own a very big chunk of it, about 75%. They own ice rinks and an adult hockey league. Revenue has been mostly flat for the past 5 years. There is about $45 million in net debt on a $50-$60 million market cap company. Pays a 2% dividend.

This went to sleep for about 3 years. Volumes had declined and costs went up. It was a situation where you couldn’t see any growth. Suddenly they turned this around over the past 3 quarters. The last quarter was quite good. Volumes went up and costs went down giving a double impact of better margins with higher volumes. There are some risks because it is cyclical. 6.57% dividend yield which is sustainable. For an income stock it is pretty solid. He wouldn’t expect the same kind of gains that we have had over the past 6-9 months, but a decent little company.
