SAN FRANCISCO-BF Enterprises Inc., a locally-based real estate holdings and development company, is reporting a third quarter profit of $575,000, or 15 cents a diluted share, on revenue of $1.17 million. The numbers are down 32% from 1999, when third quarter earnings were $856,000, or 22 cents a diluted share, on revenue of $1.54 million.

Investors reacted by trading the share price down 35% from a 52-week high of $15 on Tuesday to Thursday’s close at $9.75.

The company’s 52-week low share price is $6.50, which occurred on Feb. 3, 2000.
