Great long-term play. After the election, if trade wars settle down, this could be a beneficiary of relaxed tariffs. Great job of managing through a difficult environment. Last quarter had blockbuster earnings.

This company has paid a dividend for 144 consecutive years. Primarily a tool and storage business and they own a 20% interest in a lawn and garden business, which they hope will grow to account for 20% of annual revenues. The tariff situation did not help them. It should do well when the economy picks up. Yield 2.5%

(A Top Pick Dec 13/18, Up 35%) It’s being beaten up by the tariffs since they make tools. It continues to fight through it and slow economic growth. It’s still a cheap company that can be a huge winner. A well run company that you can still buy today.

(A Top Pick Sep 18/18, Down 8%) Very well-run. The leading tool company and huge into advanced security systems for hospitals. A solid balance sheet run by smart managers. Good dividend growth. But it's hurting because of the trade war (tariffs have pushed up their costs). It now trades at the most reasonable valuation in 20 years. A solid hold for him. When Trump says something positive about China, this will jump up.

Good recent earnings. He's owned this for a decade. Well-managed and strong balance sheet. It's struggling with currency headwinds which should reverse this year. Tariffs are raising their input costs which should also go away this year. Still positive earnings growth for 2019, but at a slower rate than many were expecting. It's been a frustrating stock the past year, down 40%. That said, it's still growing well. Take advantage of its historical low trading metrics. Industrials like this stock were harshly hit by the recent downturn.

The home building and material sector has gone through a correction over the past few months. He believes the bull cycle will resume and thinks this could be starting now. He just doesn’t think this is one of the leaders in the group. He would like to see a move back above $145 before he would get excited. He would favour Home Depot instead.

(A Top Pick May 24, 2017. Up 7%). This is a great company. They recently acquired Craftsman Tools from Sears. This is a good play on both the new home market and renovations. He expects price increases in the latter half of this year which will help. The proposed tariffs on steel and aluminum have affected them, but 40% of their sales are outside the US. They have a proprietary battery that they are considering using in all of their tools, which would improve customer retention. He is buying more, expecting a stock price rise toward the end of the year.
