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%.

(A Top Pick Oct 28/15. Down 0.95%.) A light asset, industrial company. It has about 43 different businesses in the Warren Buffett model. When they make an acquisition, they keep the president in and the management stays. It is being held down this year because it has quite a bit of exposure to the oil patch through medium technology names. A well regarded company.

One of his past Top picks, and has corrected with the market. This is asset light, and heavy on recurring revenues. Has 40 or so different diversified technology industry companies in medical imaging, radiofrequency, etc., but have been hurt recently in that they have a lot of sensors related to the oil/gas space. Each of their subsidiaries is independently run by its own president. A great name.

On his radar screen right now. They have 4 different segments to their business which they are starting to integrate. Making more in free cash flow that what they are paying in capital expenditure freeing up cash for acquisitions. Not a lot of debt outstanding. Trading at a very high multiple of 23 X earnings. Use a limit order of $35/40 and wait to see what happens.
