Dell Computers(DELL-Q) 

May 11, 2011

Aggressively trying to transition to more of a services and software driven company. Early on but have been quite successful. Trading at less than 7X forward earnings, net of cash. Attractive Risk/Reward. A lot of insider buying also.

BUY
Prefers their competitor Telus (T-T). Competitive environment between these two has been fairly reasonable so far. Both are exceptionally well managed. This company has been very patient in building out their wireless, which he feels is a smart move.

DON'T BUY
Signing incredibly strong contracts on the transportation side. Aerospace side is starting to see a turnaround. Business jets inventory is starting to get worked down. Making a significant investment in their C series to compete against Boeing and Airbus. An ambitious goal. Wait to see better orders on the C series.

BlackBerry(BB-T) 

May 11, 2011

Have had a couple of months of earnings downgrades. Market has given up on them and doesn't think the $7.50 projected earnings is going to happen. At this price becomes interesting on a risk/reward basis. Wait for it to form a base and move in the right direction.
