Question

I recently purchased VTG (Vita Group) for $1.64 (by my calculations I was buying VTG at a discount to its IV). The price for VTG has dropped to $1.175. My question is: have I been the victim of a "value trap"? (VTG has recently purchased a new business, but I thought VTG’s business fundamentals had not changed).

Answer (Paul Rickard)
