Stock-market media have been focusing in aquaculture, now that Nireus (NIR:ATH) & Selonda (SELO:ATH) are about to be sold to new bosses. On the contrary, small Perseus (PERS:ATH), indirectly related to the sector, by producing fish feed, is unexplored and in low valuation. Below, we will see that the company is cheap due to some factors that lead to uncertainty and risk for investors. Though, undervaluation seems to be extreme, compensating for those dangers, making Perseus an interesting alternative option in the broader industry of aquaculture.

Aquaculture is a special sector for the greek stock market. It is one of the few remaining productive and extroverted sectors, but having a lot of troubles and aggressive characteristics, as reflected in stock valuation and volatility. 2015 was critical due to the recapitalization of those companies’ debt coinciding with price recovery of their product. Nireus’s stock (NIR), followed by Selonda (SELO), have rallied in the last few days. On the contrary, Galaxidi Aquaculture (GALAX), despite avoiding a recapitalization, has lost half of its value. This phenomenon should draw the attention of a Value Investor.
