(A Top Pick Nov 20/18, Up 21%) Continues to be the global leader in water hygiene. New markets, population growth. Drifting a bit, as there's a bit of profit taking going on. Still growing at a solid 5-6% on segment sales. Still likes it.

Growth potential for next 5 years? Huge opportunity in the water space. Water technologies, safe food, abundant energy. Opportunity to grow tremendously. Counting on two things: 1) companies continuing to care about providing safest and cleanest products, and 2) government regulation. Bit concerning looking to the US moving backwards with Trump. Yet stock has continued to do quite well. Likes this company’s innovative products. For a pure play in the growing green economy, this name is fantastic.

Bill Gates owns 12% and keeps buying this at new highs. That's when this really caught his eye. This is a play on the internet of things in many areas. They do everything from laundry services to cleaning oil drilling machines to food waste management. They report earnings tomorrow, so maybe wait till then. (Analysts' price target $148.44)

This is on her watch list to buy. She is having problems with the valuation right now. Trading in excess of 25X estimated earnings. Very high quality company and likes what they do.
