September 13, 2018

They've done very well with a new CEO following a legal fight with a subsidiary a few years ago. A good growth play on semiconductors. Has a good balance sheet and growth potential by branching into other semicondutor components. Keep a 3-year time frame on this and expect some volatility.

Nice little tech company and nice tendency to surprise investors. OK to hold and not worry about the short-term fluctuations. Where it is now, at 20x forward earnings, is a reasonable price.

A relatively small company that guided a little bit lower. The long term outlook is good and they just signed a term agreement within China. A good time to buy or add to your position here.

Likes it alot. They've had issues with past management, but the new one is expanding the business. They do pressure controls of the inside of semi-conductors. They're giving guidance of doubling EBITDA over three years. If they exeuctue, there's a lot of room to rise.

COMMENT

July 24, 2018

Provides extremely precise temperature measurement systems for semiconductor construction/manufacturing. All 5 of the large semiconductor makers are clients. New management streamlined the company. They have increasing orders, lots of cash and high expected future earnings. However, semiconductors are a cyclical business and cellphone sales have been slowing significantly. They are being brought into more aspects of the manufacturing process and their benefit is making the manufacturer more efficient, so their opportunity is still significant going forward. They will probably make an acquisition with their cash but he doesn’t know what they might buy or how it will help them. (Analysts’ price target is $2.95)

SPECULATIVE BUY

June 20, 2018

This is a Burnaby based company.  He likes the fundamentals, but has yet to pull the trigger.  This is a small company and you should recognize it will be volatile.

e looked carefully at it but it got away from him.  It is related to the semiconductor industry.  There is cyclicality to it.  It is hard to understand what they do.  You want to buy when the multiple is cheap.  It is a great turnaround story.  They generated good growth.  Sales can be lumpy.  It is richly valued and he would trim at this level.

(A Top Pick Aug 2/18, Up 66%)  A year ago this company looked a lot messier.  They are hitting record backlogs and revenues.  The higher valuation is justified by growth.

They make devices that measure the temperatures of the leading semi-conductor chips. The market concern is that they are providing to a cyclical industry--but there's clear sailing for the next two years in this space. PHO boasts a very high ROE. Trading at 22x earnings. Expects 30% growth this year.

They make test equipment for high-tech industries, such as semiconductors. The company is small, well-run, with good margins. They made management changes recently and cleaned up the Board. He thinks this might be a good time to get into it.

They meet his criteria in terms of consistent high returns on equity.  This would be a smaller company.  It should not be a large percentage of a portfolio.  A good little company to own.

Once owned it. Good management in place who are generating a lot of cash. Depending on where we are in the semi-conductor cycle (they test semis), the stock may continue to move. He actively follows it.

He is following it, has met with management, and is not ready to invest in it yet. They have a good growth profile, good margins. They are dependent on a small number of customers but this is typical of the semiconductor industry. There’s a new CEO in place who is doing a great job of growing the business. He would only buy this company if it comes back down to a lower business. The price now reflects its improved situation. He suggests waiting to buy on weakness if you don’t already have it, but hold if you own it.
