First Carolina Investors ( FCAR)

Company Profile: First Carolina Investors was formerly a real estate investment trust (REIT), but the company now operates as a closed-end, non-diversified management investment company.

The stock, which trades on the OTC Bulletin Board, has lost nearly half its value this year after the company's board of directors asked First Carolina's management to contact outside counsel as the board considers a proposal exploring the options of winding down and liquidating the company. However, shareholders would first need to approve a proposal before any final action would be taken.
