Matthew Peterson of Peterson Capital Management presented his in-depth investment thesis on The Daily Journal Corporation (US: DJCO) at Best Ideas 2019.
The Daily Journal Corporation is an American publishing and technology company with hidden assets and off-balance sheet value. With no analysts or investor relations department, few understand the transformation that has occurred.
While historically a legal newspaper publishing company, today DJCO operates a SaaS business model providing case management software to courts and government agencies around the U.S. and the world. Licensed software for many ten-year contracts is currently in the multi-year implementation stage. Implementation is expensed as provided, while the long-term recurring high-margin revenue is not yet included on the income statement.
The board includes high-profile names such as Rick Guerin, Peter Kaufman, and Charlie Munger.
