Currently trading at about where he bought it. Hasn’t done much for him over the couple of years he has had it. Turning around but they have their solar unit that is hurting them and until they sell this it will be difficult for them. He has a target price of $22.

Having difficulties with solar operation. If they spin it off there are all kinds of questions about what shareholders will receive. As economy recovers it is a real bell weather. Longer term it should do well. It remains on his buy list.

Good company but one of its divisions, Photoaut (?) out of France is hurting so they are stuck. Likes management. Not expensive. Will be a work in progress.

Recent earnings were disappointing to a lot of people. Made money, but not much. Looking to sell their solar division. Good management.

Problem is that their revenues fell off last year. But they managed stay profitable until this last quarter. But it was a write off due to silicon. CEO knows what he is doing. Positioning it for growth. Has a lot of faith in him. Could see a triple.

(A Top Pick May 1/09. Up 62.5%.) Good management. Revenues went down above 40% in the last quarter. Think they can triple from this level. Still a Buy.

Started buying because of the solar division. They are possibly looking to sell their solar division. Likes the management. Think they have a long way to go. As the economy returns it would not surprise him to see it go over $20.

Occupies a prominent place in his president’s portfolio. A favorite and a contrarian pick. It is a serial disappointer. Global trade fell off a cliff last year and this hit ATS but they were still making money so that tells him they can size operations and workforce. If you believe this economic recovery is going to get some traction then it is well leveraged to that and will do well. A long term hold for him.

(A Top Pick Jan 5/09. Up 60%.) Sold his holdings and took a slight loss. Wouldn't be surprised to see this go to at least $9 before the summer and potentially $10 before year-end. If you own, get out if it drops below $7.80.

Likes management. Cut a lot of costs and increased revenues. Plan to do some solar work in Ontario. They have debt under control. He has a lot of confidence in this company. This quarter will not be that good because the backlog is down. He’s comfortable with this one. As things recover they can do well.

Auto Industry but they have been going through a tremendous turn around. They are also in the solar industry. Backlog is up. They are profitable now.

(A Top Pick Oct 9/08. Down 19.2%.) Had a nice quarter and is showing good backlog. Auto industry is certainly a negative but companies seem to be right sizing the workforce and staying ahead of the curve. Good management and not over leveraged.

Fairly diverse manufacturing including solar. Doing a raise now of $50 million. If that goes well, he would have a $6-$7 target price on it. Use a $4.50 Stop.
