Based in the UK, but has foreign revenues, which helps as the UK pound falls. Intertek does inspections and certifications of electronics, make-up and even cards. ITRK recession-resistant, because the products they inspect/approve will continue to be in demand during downturns. The dividend has grown 17% annually for the last 5 years. Price target of UKP 51.16 (Analysts’ price target is $51.16)

(A Top Pick Nov 01/17, Down 12%) A quality testing firm, like toys and clothines. Demand for this is growing because of stricter regulations around the world. Raising dividend at 20%. A huge cash-flow generator. Now is a good entry point. A UK company, but 60% of revenues are outside Europe. so if the UK economy slows down, they'll get paid in foreign currencies.

This is a group in Britain who do product inspection. Whether it is toys, clothes, food, anything that needs government regulation to inspect, has to get the stamp of approval from this company. They are selling more to their existing clients, but also getting new business. Projections are for 20% growth, both in earnings and dividends, and as a result, it has hit a new high today. (Analysts' price target is £4460.)

(A Top Pick June 7/13. Down 11.38%.) Still likes this a lot. Has suffered in the last 12 months because of 1) the very strong sterling, and 2) testing inspection for commodities has declined, as demand for commodities has declined. Opportunity for them is still there, because more and more companies are outsourcing their testing inspecting. The real kicker is China. Right now you can’t do inspection for China in China, but China is talking about opening it up to foreign competitors, and this is one of the big 3.

(London Exchange) Had a pretty weak year. The overall testing, inspecting, certification business has been challenged because of commodities. Out of the big 3, this is the most exposed to the consumer. The catalyst for them is that China is considering opening up its market to foreign tech companies. Right now the big 3 do Chinese testing, but all for exports, none for the domestic market. There is talk they are going to be allowed. If so, he is looking at 12% additional top line growth. Yield of 1.75%.

A testing, inspection and certification company. There are only 3 big players. Great growth opportunity from their organic business, but also from bolt-on acquisitions. They do maybe one every 2 months. There do a 5,000,000-10,000,000 pound acquisition. This adds significantly because they can take out all the back office and just work with the front office and sales. Sees double digit growth long into the future.
