As you may have seen, I wrote up an article at the end of last year on FBR Group, a small cap financial stock that had fallen very hard in the past few years as it got involved in the subprime and structured finance mess. My main thesis was that the stock was mispriced, extremely cheap, and available at a substantial margin of safety. As they reported their 4th quarter results today, my belief in a margin of safety came to fruition as the write downs were aplenty, and total asset value has changed, but the company is doing fine.

The balance sheet is strong and the stock has sold off while the fundamentals are still strong.

The springbok of southern Africa, combined with some simple mathematics, yields useful lessons for investors. A springbok is a deer-like animal that, according to Wikipedia, forms some of the largest migratory herds ever recorded. Imagine now that you are a springbok in a herd with 99 other identical springbok walking around the barren wasteland that is Africa (though there appears to be some greenery in the south). Further imagine that you are a particularly intelligent and mathematically-gifted springbok who calculates
