Industrial companies usually do very well from January through until May. Stock has just hit an all-time high. Technically it looks good. If you can buy on weakness in the next 2-3 weeks there is still a period of seasonal strength through until May.

He wouldn’t be as worried about their global growth as he would be in their operational risks. Have had a bit of an erratic ability to provide consistency of earnings. If you own, he would move to another industrial.

Feels it is cheap right now but is probably likely to stay cheap for the next little while. Global growth which is not overly robust, doesn’t favour the space that this company is in. He likes their broad geographic exposure. 40%-50% of their revenues are earned outside of the US with quite a bit in more rapidly growing emerging markets. You’ll have to be patient with it. 2.5% dividend.

(Market Call Minute.) Pretty much a reflection of the global economic growth. Had some good quarters but the latter part of the year might not look as good.

This has been one of the stalwarts of people's portfolios simply because of its enormous range of products. Has had a pretty solid performance. Relatively defensive and has a decent yield.

A core holding. A good example of a diversified industrial that the Canadian market does not offer. New CEO was an internal hire and strategy will not be materially changed. Wont scale back capital expending to increase productivity.

Listening to management, you're never quite sure where the stock is going to be. May be too diversified. He would probably go to another industrial such as United Technologies (UTX-N) or Honeywell (HON-N).

Another industrial choice. Last quarter they warned of global weakness. Thinks they are having some execution issues and would wait a quarter.

Industrial name and probably one of the worst performing sector this year. Doesn’t know if it will weather the storm in the economy. Long term it probably has a 10% growth rate but right now, no.

Has broken down through its upward trend line. The forty day moving average has now turned down. Has also broken through its support. This is a falling knife.

Trades at a pretty reasonable multiple. Macro issues have brought the price down where it is very attractive. Earning $6 a share plus with the potential to make $10 a share 10 years down the road.

This is bang on his model price of $96.36. It will probably grow from here and he'll have a price of $110. That plus your yield gives you 10%-12%.
