Broadway Industrial Group's stock had a dizzying 64% rally today (closing price: 7.2 cents) after it was reported that DCG Capital Fund considered it a "deep value" stock (see:  ).

This "deep value" is reflected in Broadway's net asset value of 16.68 cents per share as at end-March 2019.

Notably, Broadway has land use rights and a factory -- classified on its balance sheet as "assets held for sale" -- in Shenzhen, which it has been seeking a buyer for.

They are valued at S$48.8 million and S$55.6 million by two valuers (see page 65, annual report 2018).

These valuations are more than 2X the assets' book value of S$19.4 million, which further means the NAV is understated.

Broadway's recent performance has been choppy. It reported $1.7 million in net profit for FY2018, turning around from a huge $15.8 million net loss the year before.

In 1Q2019, however, it reported a net loss of $5.1 million - but said that the outlook for the industry is expected to "stabilise in 2H2019". 

As the share price had been sliding, the company bought back its shares, as can be seen in this 1-year chart:
