This whole sector has been hit very hard. Just dropped a couple of dollars in the last few days because of poor results and they weren’t very positive looking forward. Because of that, he will look at this more closely now. Would buy it at this time as he expects there will be tax loss selling in the future.

Went into an expansion in Portugal that did not work out and now they are into another expansion and the market does not like it. It is not a name with him.

(Market Call Minute.) There is a potential pickup in business spending as economic growth improves. Cheap.

Office supplies. Very mature business. As long as the US employment improves over time, people are going to need office supplies. This company pretty much has dominant market share. Generates a significant amount of free cash flow. They are buying back shares hand over fist. Great dividend increaser. Valuation is remarkably cheap at 8X this year's earnings.

This is a stock he would have liked to own but hasn't for a little while. Office supplies has been a pretty tough market to be in. Their biggest product has been paper over the years. People have been using less and less paper. If you think you are getting a strong economic recovery, this might be one to look at.

Stock took a big drop. He is not a bottom fisher so not interested. Recent earnings have not been very good. There are a lot of retailers doing extremely well so there are better places to focus on.

This is a difficult market as there is some reliance on businesses. Found a significant bottom at $14. Fairly strong resistance point at $21.60. Upside is going to be fairly limited to $21-$22. This is a stock that is not going to take off. Has a lot of competition.

The model price is $28.46, a positive 30% differential. Thinks this would be consumer discretionary, which is not the favourite of most portfolio managers, but this is done very well to hang in there. Not cheap enough to get into his portfolios but doing a very good job in a hostile retail environment.

If you are going to be in the retail/consumer sector, this is a good one to be in. 75% of their revenue comes from spending by businesses which he likes. Not too expensive.
