Likes the auto industry, specifically while there are concerns around the economy. As a result of 2008 there are fewer cars coming off lease so a used car is relatively expensive. If you look at Japan’s spring, there is a shortage of parts. There are now fewer parts suppliers and they are more powerful there. He owns two auto part US companies. Auto should perform better of economy gets a little bit better. Business is currently strong in North America. Wait until the market behaves a bit better before getting into it.

Well run company, diversified. The problem is that it is the wrong kinds of business for the current economic environment. These types of companies can really get clobbered. If you think this is a mid-cycle slowdown, then it could do well in a mid-cycle slowdown. It will have a difficult time if the economy is slowing.

Processor of oil seeds. With crop size being small it could impact their revenues. Prefers not to be in processors but in fertilizers.

Great business but in the wrong spot right now. Tremendous sand finding and increasing production. With that they will raise their distribution. They are attractive relative to other producers, but he is reducing his energy exposure. If you want to own one this is one and the yield is good.

The metals producers are really out of favour. Severely under performed the market along with all metal producers. An area to avoid.
