Investors don't recognize its value. It can grow inorganically in this environment. A solid business that operates medical MRI clinics, the number two player in the U.S. Payout rates have been very stable. Free cash flow will turn around this year. This should do well this year and boasts a lot of upside. Also, a cheap valuation. (Analysts’ price target is $5.69)

It hasn't been getting love. Its business is in the U.S. They've executed very well. They operate MRI and CT scan clinics, as one of the biggest players in the States. They're in a 20% EBITDA business. Aging demographics are a huge tailwind, and Americans prefer going to clinics than pricier hospitals. (Analysts’ price target is $5.92)

A longtime favourite of his. AKU is a consolidator of imaging centres (x-rays, CAT scans, MRIs) at outpatient centres. There are bigger competitors, but they're trading at a higher 9x multiple than AKU. AKU trades around 8x. Today's acquisition was at 7x and addeds $30 million more EBITDA. There's still lots of consolidation to go in the U.S. So AKU can keep buying. Lots of runway ahead.
