Has had a good run and may be time to lock in your profits. Would have concerns on its growth trajectory. 50% of the business is services driven by software sales. If the software sales are not there, then the service revenue will eventually be hurt.

If you get it at fair value, you get a 9/10% return. Have given a very bold forcast for their coming fiscal year and are really looking at double digit growth. Doesn't expect a special dividend, but a lot more in share buy-back.

Be very careful with this one. Really served a niche very, very well. Data over cell networks and data capability are now everywhere, so their niche is slowly getting squeezed.

2nd fiddle to Cisco (CSCO-Q). Probably stronger with the wireless customers. A business you can own, but he prefers Cisco which has a better franchise, better history on ROE, less volatility and is also fairly valued.

Things are getting better after a couple of tough years. The travel industry is recovering. The real upside here is from the business jets. Could get to $4.50, maybe $5.

In a transition now. They need to reposition from the old technology to the new internet based technology which they are doing. The flip side of that is they are having to spend over the last couple of years. Competition is getting more fierce. Has a lot of free cash flow giving them a lot of options. Can't see a lot of upside.
