Today In Value Stocks: WaPo Co. Very Undervalued, Despite Horribly Embarrassing Black Hole 'Flagship Company'
"Shares of magazine and newspaper publisher Washington Post Co. jumped Monday after an article in Barron's dubbed it 'America's most undervalued media company.' Investors responded by sending Washington Post's shares up $38.64, or 8.7 percent, to $483.38 in afternoon trading. The stock has ranged from $325.17 to $495.60 over the past year." This afternoon, the giddy Post Co. took advantage of this new spotlight to impress Wall Street even further, by displaying its December 31, 2009 home page on WashingtonPost.com for a while.
