Ludlow Energy Issues Research Opinion on Southridge Enterprises, Inc., Price Target of $0.40 Per Share
DALLAS, Aug. 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Ludlow Energy Ventures, Inc. issues research opinion on Southridge Enterprises, Inc. (BULLETIN BOARD: SRDG) , a producer and distributor of biodiesel fuel through wholesale and retail, with a 'speculative' B-rating, and near-term price target of $0.40 per share.
SUMMARYFor the nine months ending May 31, 2008, Southridge reported total revenues of $11,760,000, with a gross profit of $5,033,000. For the same nine-month period the company reported total net income of $4,006,062, or a $0.04 EPS.
Mark Blackwell, Research Analyst with Ludlow Energy Ventures commented, "Giving a conservative PE of 10 SRDG should be trading at $0.40 based on their previous nine month EPS result of $0.04 per share. Based on a current market price of $0.06 per share the company is only trading at 1.5 x recent nine- month EPS results. Thus, Ludlow Energy Ventures has updated its research opinion on SRDG with a 'speculative' B+ rating and a short-term price target of $0.40."
Dallas-based Southridge is developing ethanol plants in Mississippi, Texas, El Salvador and Brazil.
