When are we going to stop buying cars? It is a cyclical stock. His model price is $101.47, or a 68% upside. But if we got into a soft patch on auto sales, it would go back to $47 very quickly. If it went down to $56.77 he would be out of the stock.

US banks have not done anything for three years or more. 2009 was a low, but long term they have been trading sideways. Since election night a lot of these stocks have literally come alive. His model price is $66.61, or an 8.5% upside, but he would ignore that. The dividend has been severely repressed. He sees them substantially increasing them. (Analysts’ Target: $63.07).

Trades a little above the model price, but he looks at the price relative to its balance sheet. You have to go back to 1995 to get it at the same valuation as today. This one is one of the best companies in America. (Analysts Target: $89.38).

Pays a small dividend, but not attractive enough for him. A value play if you believe the consolidation of the companies they bought are successful and they are able to spin out their real estate.
