TRADE #37 - Buy TALK 290s @ $10.36 in Roth IRA

Contributed by mm | February 3, 2004 11:25 AM PST

I just purchased 290 shares of Talk (Talk America Holdings Inc.) in my Roth IRA account for $10.36 apiece, plus a commission of $14.95.

I first got to know TALK from Motley Fool Hidden Gems newsletter. This newsletter applies a value-oriented to dig out deeply valued small caps for audience. TALK was its debut pick back in July 2003.

I didn't pay much attention to TALK for a long time, because I don't know much about telecom and I didn't have much investable cash either (I was buying a house back in August). Recently TALK entered my screen because it led the daily loser ranklist among stocks in my watch list for two days. After testing $15 in September and October, it dropped to close to $10 recently.

I spent some time to read TALK's SEC filings and re-read the Hidden Gems newsletter. Here is a list of things I like:

1. Established and rapidly growing customer base
2. Positive cash flow; paying down debts
3. Attractive valuation (<10 times earnings and FCF)

Without doubt, it is highly risky to buy a stock just before it is about to release quarter earnings (yes, TALK will release its Q4 numbers after the market close today), but

My target price for TALK is $17 for now, and I will look into the earning release and refresh the goal if necessary.

(A side note: I can only purchase 290 shares due to the availability of funds in the Roth IRA account.)
