WayUndervalued Small Cap stocks

You'll notice Jones Energy (JONE) is no longer Way Undervalued.  It dropped below the 100% cutoff during the past month since it's stock price is up 6% and more importantly, average EPS expectations for JONE have dropped nearly 20%.

On April 17th, I nearly bought shares of UEPS when it's intraday share price dropped about 25% to around $7 per share after a news headline was released about a South Africa court ruling regarding Net 1 UEPS.  Their intraday Value Discount was up to about 275% (maybe I should call that Way Way Undervalued).  Unfortunately for me, I couldn't pull the trigger in time to buy the stock.  The share price traded near $7 only for a very short period during the day.  Later that day, the stock recovered back to around $9 per share and I missed my chance.  Maybe next time.  If you look at a chart for UEPS, it won't even show this temporary price drop.  You'll have to look at a historical table with price highs & lows for it to show up.

Another stock missing from the list is SUPERVALU Inc (SVU).  SVU earnings estimates are about the same today as they were a month ago.  The stock is up 9% since last month.  However, their current trailing P/E ratio is much lower than their historical average.  This technically takes them off the list, but I'm torn about putting them in the list since I believe their stock could go up as people realize the company trades at a low P/E ratio (currently around 10).  But, nobody cares what I believe and this site is about sticking to the numbers - not emotion.  So, SVU is off the official list.  Should this situation repeat itself for top-performing stocks, I'll need to find a numerical way to quantify it in order to change the rules around here.  Until then, sorry SVU.

Also missing from the list this month is VVI.  It missed the 100% cutoff by a single digit percentage.  Another missing from the list is WNS since it's an ADR.  ADR's will be removed from future Way Undervalued stock picks.

New additions to this month's Small Cap picks are CG, GLF, MGI, PRFT.  Nothing major to tell here, they just crossed the cutoff line since last month.

I'll monitor these and post updates for any changes to the list.

Disclosure: I own BCOR, JONE & BRSS.  I also have plans to buy PBF within the next 48 hours.
