I find that when I am nervous about management, its been best for me to stay away no matter how cheap the stock seem in relation to the assets. A case that comes immediately to mind was i had a heated discussion at the time with Jeff who brought SEMI here, that management had some sweetheart deal whereby they would skim off an enormous share of the profits from investor whenever the company had a good year. as soon as i saw that I bailed. Now its bankrupt i hear. Alliance semiconductor was another one where management just took whatever advantage they could from shareholders and i got burned pretty badly on that one. I just want to be in situations where management is alligned with shareholder interests and receptive to their needs.
