Semiconductors: The index was up 50% last year. Capital is moving into the space. He prefers the analogue space and PHO-T is effectively a 5 G play. It may work, but he would prefer a dividend paying stock.

They make fibre-optic sensors, essential to semi-chips, especially with 5G coming and self-driving cars and AI. Demand for chips is booming. Nearly 30% of their market cap is in net cash. Big opportunity to grow in chips. The stock hasn't rallied because it's small, so few know about it. But this will change as more investors hear about it. (Analysts’ price target is $1.70)

Likes it. Semis have done well. This is very cheap with a great balance sheet. Revenues should be ramping up.

They provide parts and equiment to the semiconductor industry. Has pulled back with the slowdown in the industry in general but they are making the right moves and trying to diversify their revenues. Probably not going to see a lot happening with this company until there is more confidence behind the industry and the China and US tensions. They have a decent amount of cash. Probably best to wait for the industry to recover.

He's shorting this. They missed a few quarters. Long-term this is interesting. As 5G builds up, they will benefit, because they supply the semi-conductor companies.

Ranks well in his metrics. Because of a slowdown in semi stocks, but expect a rebound to new highs. PHO's underlying buiness is cloudy; analysts have shaved earnings estimates by 20% in the last 90 days and earnings will decline by 32% this year. They still have a lot of free cash flow, though. They want to acquire something to diversify. Their business model is much better. PHO will benefit when semis recover in the market.

There had been concerns in the semi-conductor space and the produce very sensitive temperature monitoring devices for semiconductors. They deal with the five big producers around the world. New management has led to increased orders and now cash is growing. The stock is reasonably priced, he thinks. A great company and well managed -- likely a future take over target. (Analysts’ price target is $2.25)

(A Top Pick Dec 21/17, Down 36%) It did extremely well until the last few months last year. He started buying around $1.10 and took money off at $2.10. He still owns a small position. About 27% of their market cap is in cash. The CEO recently resigned. He still continues to hold it. The balance sheet looks great and they have huge intellectual property value -- potentially making it a great acquisition target.

They're in the semi space, which has been smacked lately. This will be fine. Their ROE has dipped too low for him, though. If you own it, hang onto it. If you have a time horizon past five years, add to your position.

A name they cover and like. It has been growing nicely but now that the semi-conductor space has slowed down they are feeling the impact. You could wait to the next quarter as they said that next quarter sales are lower.

Interesting little name. It is correlated with the semiconductor space. Cheap name. Extremely whippy sector. He would be cautious until demand outstrips supply in the short term. They lowered guidance last quarter.

This is going to be a volatile business. It is highly correlated to the semiconductor business. They had to reorganize last year, but successfully. Be prepared for quarterly volatility. It is not cheap. The stock moved up and got ahead of itself.
