The advertisement

So I love the new advertisement and it appears that it is making a real difference. I can't think what else would account for URB.A holding up so well (around $4.08) over the past few days while...read more

RE:RE:RE:Round numbers

Your observations are spot-on Mr. Moribund.  But I think there are a couple factors that point to Urbana having terrific upside. On the short-term side, Urbana's discount to NAV has in...read more

RE:RE:Round numbers

Yes they're cheap but you have to bear a few things in mind. First, with the strong performance of the stock on Friday vs. the big drops in the publicly-traded portfolio holdings (plus the $29...read more

RE:Round numbers

Urbana shares are so cheap it makes me want to cry.  I'd strongly prefer that they aim for a round number of 30 million shares outstanding at end of 2022, and 10 million outstanding at end of...read more

Round numbers

So on Monday the 18th there was a trade of 409,100 URB.A shares (at $3.84), which was curious because as of the previous Friday there were 32,409,100 "A" shares outstanding. Hard to believe...read more

Marketing quandary

My sense is that Urbana has long wrestled with the question of how to market the story. You can argue that it should be simple: good record of stock picking, solid NAV per share growth, which sounds...read more

RE:URB - INCREASE IN VALUATION OF CNSX MARKETS INC. SHARES

Yes, it certainly is good news--in two ways. Obviously, it's good news because it bumps up the NAV per share by roughly 80 cents. Maybe even more important, though, it may have the effect of re...read more

NCIB restarted

Good to see the NCIB starting up again. Aside from the obvious benefit to all shareholders in buying back shares at half the NAV per share, I'd say it's important also in a symbolic way, as...read more

RE:RE:Fourth Regular Dividend Increase in Five Years

I prefer the dividend be kept at 10c per share range, combined with an aggressive buyback program.  That way I can take advantage of buying opportunities when I see fit (using the dividend...read more

RE:Fourth Regular Dividend Increase in Five Years

Okay, I'll take it, though there's a strong case to be made that the money would be better spent on buying more shares (at 1/2 the NAV per share) under the NCIB. I guess a shareholders always...read more

RE:NCIB

In fairness, it seems Urbana HAS in fact been paying down the BMO credit line. I see on November 5 the balance was $29,000,000. As of December 24 it stood at $23,700,000. Given the current scares...read more

NCIB

Would be nice to see the NCIB crank up again. Tom Caldwell clearly has a thing for round numbers. Surely not a coincidence that the NCIB has been paused for a while now with the non-voting share...read more

RE:Net Asset Value per Share above $7 – Sets New All-time High

Superb management team. Here since the early $1.20 level. Nice to see NAV at $7 per share. Share buyback should move us closer,l  rate and reply
