20x earnings 2.6%div yield. Incredible company. New products coming out, they are able to grow. Europe may make the stock wobble a bit, but it's a great company so buy if you can. Watch over the next couple of quarters.

It generally reflects the US economy. It is an innovation company, depending on new products. It has not been as innovated as it could have been. It is okay, but not an exciting stock.

An incredible conglomerate of products and therefore a great representation of the overall market. It doesn’t deviate very much from the market trends. You can probably expect this to perform like the industrial sector on a go forward basis. It tends to weaken over the next few months into October. He would be looking to exit this position at this time.

Chart shows this has formed a kind of tabletop at around $163 from the beginning of the year. If it dropped below $152, it would suggest that we are probably getting into the $130 range. The fact that it is making a basic pattern is very positive. MACD is starting to turn over a little bit, so that may be saying that there could be a little bit more weakness. The long-term chart looks beautiful. There is nothing in the technicals that would indicate any change.

An industrial conglomerate which does everything from postage to Scotch tape. Innovation is really their growth catalyst. They produce 20 products, on average, a year and a 3rd of their revenue comes from products that are less than 5 years old. They are still continuing to expand aggressively. They are issuing $3-$5 billion of debt this year, looking to putting it to work for growth. Stock has continued to run up. If you own, it is a good time to take some money off the table, just because of its valuation. Historical PE is around 12X, and is currently trading at close to double that.

A wonderful company, but priced to perfection. This is a favourite among industrial portfolio managers. It tends to be early cycle material, so as you see an uptick in the economy, this stock tends to do very well early on, but we are beyond that.

Has done well, particularly in the last year. This is a very large global company, and some would argue that it is too big to grow. They took on some debt to buy back stock. Fairly expensive at this level. If you own, consider taking some profits.

This is a perfect stock to rotate into. As a bull market matures, what you want to do at the backend of the market is to pick up the deep cyclicals, and this is one of them. He would favour this. No top insight for the stock.

Doesn't see a huge amount of upside in a company like this. It is a stable business and has done okay in the past, because there has been a flight to steadier, stable businesses. People are going to make their money in the more cyclical names, such as financials, industrials, technologies, and to a lesser degree the material/energy companies.

Amongst the most profitable and consistently has the best organic growth of the diversified industrials. Have signalled they are going to go to a more aggressive cash payout, so put through a huge dividend increase this past fall. Because of the growth in the business, he feels the outlook for dividend growth continues to be very attractive.
