It is probably a little richly valued for him, but the trend is quite good. Industrials should do better. You will see continued demand loosely tied to housing and infrastructure.

He likes this because it gets him exposure to consumer spending, home renovations and the housing market without having to take on 3 distinct companies. They just sold a component of their locks division, which he views as positive. They have a new component for their tool side, coming out with a battery that works with everything and should generate good numbers for them. A positive balance sheet and some good strength sales in Europe. Dividend yield of 1.7%. (Analysts’ price target is $150.)
