We have closed our position in Soapstone Networks Inc  (SOAP).  SOAP was added on March 9, 2009, when the company was trading at a 49% discount to its net cash value (see original report here). On June 15, 2009, the company announced that its Board of Directors had unanimously approved a plan of liquidation. The company declared an extraordinary cash dividend of $3.75 per share, plus $0.25-$0.75 per share in the future. Correcting for the approved initial distribution of $3.75, SOAP is trading at $0.50, which is in the middle range of the future distributions expected by management. We do not think that an additional potential gain of $0.25 justifies the risk of owning the stock, so we have closed our position for a 49% gain.
