A name he wants to like but their results are so volatile that are very difficult to gauge. They just won a decision against Apple so probably will have some cash going their way. He prefers to wait until they show some consistent cash-flows. (Analysts’ price target is $2.08)

Hasn't looked at this closely. They were planning to make some acqusitions and be more of a holding company, then they had a bump when they reached some settlements with Apple, which is contesting those settlements. The stock looks cheap, but he's not big on holding companies. Don't sell now; it's too cheap and holding on better than most stocks in the current downturn. It's a defensive position. If they get the money from Apple, it should move up nicely. He doesn't own this stock, because it's too small.

They still generate a lot of cash flow from their patents. New management has a new strategy. They made acquisitions last year to diversify. They seem to be implementing a software roll up strategy. Hang on if you own it, otherwise wait a few quarters to see exactly what the strategy will be.

(A Top Pick Aug. 14/17, Down 6%) They have done three takeovers of some size over the last year. Last quarter they lost about 12 million. He suspects there will be better news going forward. In the States, legislation is against them now. You have to be ready for quite a roller coaster ride.

Was previously Wi-Lan. The balance sheet, revenues and margins are all pretty good, but it seems to still be a show-me stock. They have had screw ups over the past 10 years, but they seem to be getting on track. He thinks they need to see an acquisition to get things going.

They are trying to re-make their brand. It looks cheap and the balance sheet looks pristine. There is not much downside, but he continues to sit on the sidelines as it is still a bit expensive.

(A Top Pick April 3, 2017. Down 14.04%). This is one of his top picks again today. The company has morphed. It has gone into the internet of things, has made acquisitions (available cash has gone down from 100 million to 35-40 million). They have a new CEO who was very successful at Open Text. Their earnings will probably be less lumpy. Last quarter, their revenues were 85 million, compared to 90 million for last year. The improvement is huge. The stock went up to some degree but came back.

This is a former patent troll. The company has morphed. It has gone into the internet of things, has made acquisitions (available cash has gone down from 100 million to 35-40 million). He is concerned that they might blow their cash on new takeovers and concerned about the risk of heavy writedowns if they do too many takeovers. They have a new CEO who was very successful at Open Text. Their earnings will probably be less lumpy. Last quarter, their revenues were 85 million, compared to 90 million for last year. The improvement is huge. They pay a small dividend and will report results very soon. (Analysts’ price target is 3.00$)

A patent troll, and has done a deal with Samsung, Kyocera and just bought a bunch of patents from Panasonic. They've expanded into the Internet of things and did 2 big takeovers last year, which meant their cash hoard went down from $100 million to $40 million. Just hired David Parker, a Senior VP at OpenText, and under him have done $2.5 billion of acquisitions. Thinks this is in an expansion mode. They've earned about $22 million. Dividend yield of 2.2%. (Analysts' price target is $3.)
