QuickPost: My Latest Stock Purchase

Recently, I’ve been accumulating a small position in GNW.

Quite simply, the company’s shares are trading around $4 yet the company has an outstanding offer from a Chinese company to be bought out at $5.43 which was just approved by GNW shareholders.

There are still regulatory hurdles to overcome, so the $5.43 per share deal isn’t guaranteed, although the expected closing date is mid-year.

Even if the deal falls through, my initial impression is that the company’s intrinsic value is worth more than $4 share, and the company has marketable securities it can liquidate to meet any debt or operational obligations in the near future.

For perspective, GNW comprises approximately 5% of my current portfolio.  I may add more to my portfolio in the future.

    1. Good question! GNW is a financial holding company that focuses on insurance products in the US and internationally.

      The acquisition offer makes sense because 1) the company is undervalued and has stabilized its operations; 2) the acquirer is hoping to leverage GNW’s expertise to grow its China business and the Chinese insurance market.
