Trades around 30x earnings but future earnings are suppose to improve. They do RFID tags for tow roads in America and Saudi Arabia. They also do meter readings outside houses. Free cash flow can grow which will pay off debt. They're raising their dividend by 10-15% annually, and the stock price will follow. (Analysts’ price target is $381.15)

A big holding of his. The current pullback is a buying opportunity. It holds 36 diverse businesses, mid-sized. Recurring revenue, neither low- nor high-tech. They're doing something nice because the shares have done very well over time.

Some of what they do leads into medical devices, which he likes. They do pumps, high frequency components and other medical items. They recently beat earnings. The recent pullback is not too concerning. He is unsure if they are facing any tariff threats. He needs to do more homework on this.

An industrial conglomerate. They had been big on traditional industrial plays but now are pivoting to software as-a-service revenues. They are well run and spin off a lot of cash. They have a great track record for acquisitions.

Continue to like it, but it's moving up in price. In the S&P, but doesn't get a lot of love because it's smaller. Among other things, software purchasing company. Dividend increased 12% this year, and over 5 years it's averaged 19%. That way, when the price comes off, you still get some income.

A mini Berkshire. They hold medium-tech and medium-size businesses that are overlooked by the big guys and too big for the little guys. Low volatility. He'd keep buying it.

They generate so much cash that they are able to pay off most of their debt quickly, so they can then make the next acquisition. They are also into areas such as medical software, TAG technology for the toll roads in Texas, Florida, New Jersey and New York State, and a little bit of oil and gas. They got into the right sectors at the right time. They eschewed all the old industrial stuff they used to have, but still keeps the high margin stuff. They have margins in the 63% range. He still buys this for new clients.

An industrial company. It has been chugging along sideways. Owns a bunch of different high-tech industrial equipment and analytical instruments. There are 43 independent businesses run under the same sort of program the way Warren Buffett runs Berkshire Hathaway. Scientific imaging is about 35% of the business, all the way down to energy and controls. Thinks this is a sneaky little smart play. Dividend yield of 0.69%.
