This is a good company but he has trouble with the valuation. The return on capital has been improving the last few years which is a good sign. It looks very expensive. They have a lot of debt. He has some concern and would probably not buy.

One of his largest positions. He is holds this because of its cash flow stream and the paying down of debt. Even if he flat lined the revenues, he feels he would still make somewhere in the neighbourhood of 20%-25% a year for the next few years.

One of the largest merchant acquirers and payment processors in the US. About 80%+ of their business is in the US. Valuation is really cheap. They should throw off around $3 billion in free cash flow over the next 3 years, about 30% of their market cap. Even if they flat lined, with the amount of cash they throw off you should be able to accrete over 30% in the next 3 years.
