He is very negative on resource stocks right now and this company has 45% exposure to mining. Mining has probably been the hardest hit of any sector in the resource area.

We are looking at potential of 10% more correction on this one but not much more. It is largely linked to earnings being a bit weak. Mining equipment sales are expected to fall by half this year. He thinks this is already reflected in the stock price. Begin nibbling when it drops 10%.

Came under a lot of pressure because of China. The focus of their current 5 year plan is less on China industrial growth and on the infrastructure but rather from consumer spending side. Concerns are warranted. Prefers TKR-N, but it is very volatile.

Sold off a couple of weeks ago on some guidance related to Asia. Solid company. Trading at about 10X earnings. This is probably a pretty decent entry point. When global economies get a little bit more steam behind them to earn $12-$13 earnings a share, you will have a nice little return.Sold off a couple of weeks ago on some guidance related to Asia.

(Market call minute.) Hold for now but if it gets down to the high $60s you can buy. Has some competition coming of China and mining activity is slowing down.

An industrial name that should do well but the huge urbanization infrastructure story that was so big in China is still happening but not as quickly. This has really been a China play in a lot of ways. Stock hasn’t done much. If you own, consider moving into something else in that space.

(A Top Pick March 14/12. Down 18.66%.) Wasn’t certain in the middle of 2012 that global expansion was going to be as strong as it was. There were indications that their order book was starting to drop.

China’s economy has been slowing over the last couple of years and, in fact it bottomed last summer. Now it is coming back but the issue is, how quickly. His take is that it will be in the 7.5 %-8% range so the growth rate for this company will be slower. Has exposure to the housing market in the US as well, which is doing very well. Good name to own but be careful picking your entry point.

(Market Call Minute.) Thinks we are starting to see a slowdown. There is not a lot of sign of capital spending on equipment. (Classes it as a Weak Hold.)

Backlog fell at about 20% late last fall. That was an indication that things were slowing. He had been lowering his exposure to industrials and he sold his holdings. Great company and well managed but he felt he should get out. If China starts to come back on the mining and earthmoving sides then the stock should do well.

This is a stock that will benefit from the global trends of the emerging markets with infrastructure and urbanization. However, for the time being, he is out of this one due to the slowdown in emerging markets. He is seeing some of the global data points getting a little bit better but not ready to go back in yet. Just lowered their guidance for 2012 full year. Trading below the 200 day moving average. (See Top Picks.)
