A great way to play the recovery of the housing market and industrial construction market, not just in North America, but globally. This company is a highly innovative and highly acquisitive manufacturer of hand tools, door entry security systems, etc. Have been exceptionally successful. Good dividend of around 2.5%. Missed a quarter recently because of a slower turnaround of a European acquisition they made. Trading at around 12.5X earnings.

Likes the exposure to the brand names of Black & Decker and Stanley Tools. Also likes the exposure to the US housing market, which is in a lot different shape than in Canada. Feels the dividend is sustainable. There is a lot of organic growth, more so in the renovation market.
