Entry and Exit Points

Entry Points

  • $11.50
    • It has solid support closer to the $10 level, however, it’s intrinsic value is high enough to where I would buy it at these levels. It has a 34% margin of safety at these levels.

Exit Point

  • $30
    • I picked $30 as an arbitrary point because I wouldn’t sell it if the company was still reasonably priced according to its valuation. However, if the price inflates faster than the business can operate within, I would sell at $30, take profits, and look for a better entry point for next purchase.


  • I like NAII as a deep value, small cap play. Their balance sheets are incredible, and the fact that they don’t have any debt is equally as attracting. One thing I would like to see is if they have an economic moat within their market, as well as any competitive advantages and catalysts going into the future. However, based on balance sheets, earnings, and revenue growth, I really like NAII at these prices, and would buy heavily if it dipped into the $10s.
