Today I will outline PICO Holdings. I will go over what exactly are PICO Holdings shareholders getting in December. The company Piotroski F Score is 6 - Healthy. Given the investment horizon of 30 days, PICO Holdings is expected to generate 0.94 times more return on investment than the market. However, the company is 1.06 times less risky than the market. It trades about 0.18 of its potential returns per unit of risk. The market is currently generating roughly 0.12 per unit of risk. PICO Holdings owns latest Real Value of $21.78 per share. The recent price of the company is $10.97. At this time the company appears to be undervalued. This module determines value of PICO Holdings from analyzing the company fundamentals such as Return On Asset of 0.014  and Operating Margin of 17.41  as well as examining its technical indicators and Probability Of Bankruptcy. In general, we support to invest in undervalued equities and to dispose of overvalued equities since in the future instruments prices and their ongoing real values will converge.
PICO Holdings to continue upsurge in December

PICO HOLDINGS INC currently holds roughly 9.68 M in cash with 973 K of positive cash flow from operations. This results in cash-per-share (CPS) ratio of 0.48. This firm dividends can provide a clue to current valuation of the stock. PICO Holdings is not expected to issue dividends this year as it trying to preserve or re-invest any of the funds available for distribution to stakeholders. The company has Profit Margin (PM) of 0.25 % which maeans that even a very small decline in it revenue will erase profits resulting in a net loss. This is way below average. Similarly, it shows Operating Margin (OM) of 17.41 % which suggests for every 100 dollars of sales it generated a net operating income of 0.17.

The latest bullish price patterns experienced by current PICO Holdings shareholders may encourage investors to take a closer look at the company as it closed today at a share price of 10.97 on 1 in trading volume. The company executives have been very successful with rebalancing the company components at opportune times to take advantage of market volatility in October. The stock standard deviation of daily returns for 30 days (very short) investing horizon is currently 1.1938. The below-average Stock volatility is a good sign for a longer term investment options and for buy-and-hold investors. PICO Holdings preserves 10.75  of price to sales. PICO Holdings is selling at 10.97. That is 0.37 percent increase. Day high is 11.01. PICO Holdings Direct Expenses is increasing over the last 5 years. Moreover, PICO Holdings Sales per Share is quite stable at the moment.

To sum up, I belive PICO Holdings is currently undervalued. It Follows market closely and projects below average chance of financial distress in the next two years. Our concluding Buy/Hold/Sell recommendation on the corporation is Strong Hold.
