Has performed poorly so far. It was badly beaten up because they over promised at the beginning of the year, and didn’t live up to that promise, but are now showing signs of shaping up. They are going to boost their overall buyback to $12 billion in shares. It tends to do well at this time of the year.

Basically a good company. They have several brands including Carrier and Otis elevators. Right now the market is grappling with the whole issue of global growth. In the next little while he thinks industrials are going to be challenged by the overall growth theme. Production figures are very weak in the US now. He wouldn’t be buying an industrial company right now, because the industrial data is not showing strength.

This is a classic seasonal trade that happens most years. Historically, the sector does very well from around the middle of October right through until the beginning of January, except for a bit of a break in February, and then goes higher right through until April. First of all look at the technicals to see that they are starting to line up for a move for a seasonal trade. Technically, right now the stock is underperforming the market, which is not a good sign. It is also trading below its 20 day moving average. Short-term momentum indicators are also trending down.

An excellent company. It has some ties to the US economy. If it pulls back, it could be a good opportunity to add to your position.

Does United Tech's recent pullback provide a buying opportunity? It is a risky market right now. He believes that it is best to look at the relative strength of the sector. Looking at market leadership. Industrials for the past year have been underperforming the market. They have been invested in UTX in the past. You have a good theme. They have non-res. construction, aerospace leverage, good industry, very cyclical, but good. It is well run. Moderate expectation on the top line, but great capital return. Feels that there are better places to be in the market though.

(Top Pick Aug 19/14, Down 7.68%) It has lagged partially because of FX. Otis has a large presence in China and it has been a difficult market with the demand weakening and they have seen price competition there. It is a well managed, diversified, multinational company.

Lockheed Martin (LMT-N) or United Technology (UTX-N). This is really about defence aerospace versus other industrial technology based companies. He would probably have a preference for this company, primarily because the defence world is really a tough one to figure out. The risk of either winning or losing a program is quite high, which is going to put a damper on any kind of multiple expansion on defence companies.

(A Top Pick July 8/14. Down 0.39%.) A high quality industrial company and she still likes it. They are capturing 2 trends, massive renovations in emerging markets, through their building products including the elevators, Carrier, Chubb for security and also capturing travel through their aerospace division. New management is focusing on what they want to invest in.

There are worries about the effect of the US dollar on exports. He is bullish on US industrials in general so you might see this as a buying opportunity. If there is a good dip it might be time to buy it.

(Top Pick Jun 3/14, Down 1.08%) It is flat in an otherwise decent market. Earnings are about 23% lower than two years ago. They will sell or spin off their troubled helicopter business. Historically a great return on equity but now it is a low return on investment and with a new CEO.

A high-quality global industrial company. Really focused on building systems, so they’ve got HVAC through Carrier, airplane engines through Pratt & Whitney and Otis elevators. This participates in 2 megatrends. Urbanization through their building services and the growth in travel through aviation. About 40% of their business comes from aftermarket giving a more stable, reoccurring revenue stream. Dividend yield of 2.2%.

A very well diversified company. They have their aerospace side where they’ve had a few missteps over the last couple of years and had to go back to the drawing board. Have also had a little bit of trouble internationally. They own Otis and Carrier which are tied to residential and commercial buildings. They’ve also had trouble in China which has slowed down. There had also been management problems. When he saw the changes that were being made, he felt that he would stay with the company, thinking that the market might build back in some of that multiple spread that was lacking. That is exactly what happened. At this point it is probably fairly fully priced. However, they are starting to gain some traction in their technologies.

This is a behemoth. They are in elevators, helicopters, etc., etc. If you have the ability to buy and hold through a cycle, you should do okay with this. It is a high class industrial cyclical. If you want to make money in industrial cyclicals, you have to buy them when they are cheap. At this point in the cycle we are starting to see some currency impact from global operations, and this will hurt this company. If you Buy and Hold on a 10 year basis, you should be okay. If you have a shorter term view, this may be the time to take some money off the table. Thinks it is a very lofty here. A better way would be to play the pure play.
