Hasn’t really moved. Young fleet of 91 planes with about 4.5 years average age, all 737's. Well managed. Southwest Air has bought Air Tran, which is positive for the industry as he expects much more consolidation. Fundamentally cheap.

Disappointed the company did a financing it $1.70. An excellent balance sheet and didn't need the money but have pre-funded all of their major developments for the next year or two. Good management.

Printing facility in Switzerland, which produces euro dollar, Swiss franc and passports. 2nd facility in Germany producing wallpaper. Purchased bankrupt pulp/paper mill and shifting production from MBHP pulp to dissolving pulp for manufacturing rayon, a cotton substitute. No longer a deep value play. Sold at quarter of his holdings. Still likes.

2nd largest cable operator in Ontario/Quebec corridor with some have facilities in Portugal. Comparing EV/EBITDA multiples to Rogers (RCI.B-T) they are almost 2 points lower and 10 to 15 points lower in penetration giving it a lot more potential. 1.5% dividend.

Contract mine driller with 70% being gold. Because of so many gold financing over the last while, they will have a lot of work to do. Debt-free. Has a lot of potential torque as gold mining picks up. Not widely followed and fundamentally very cheap.
